Formula 1 tyre supplier Pirelli has released their testing schedule for 2018, with all ten teams taking part in tests across the season.

The session is part of Pirelli’s 2019 tyre development programme and will feature ten two-day testing session across nine venues.

Teams will test after races in China, Spain, Great Britain, Japan and Mexico City, with additional sessions taking place at Fiorano and Paul Ricard.

We’ve defined the calendar with all the teams,” spoke Pirelli’s Head of Car Racing, Mario Isola.

It is good that we have been able to distribute one dry session to each team.

“We offered to test to all the teams, and all the teams replied in a positive way,” added the Italian manager.

“Talking about wet tyres, we have less sessions, we have three teams who were also available to test on wets, and we allocated wet tests to these three teams.

Teams are not allowed to test development parts for their 2018 cars across the season during these tests.
