Formula One tyre manufacturer Pirelli will introduce a softer compound tyre for the 2018 Formula One World Championship.

In fact the Italian tyre developer could introduce three new compound tyres for next season.

Currently Formula One teams and drivers get to pick tyre compounds from the range of purple ultra-soft, red super-soft, yellow soft, white medium and orange hard.

The problem now is just what to name them! The five original compounds appear to be keeping their designated name and colour.

The new softer than ultra-soft tyre will be pink with reporting that Pirelli are looking for suggestions for a new name, with ‘megasoft’, ‘extremesoft’ and ‘hypersoft’ put forward as potential new names.
