With the summer break now under way, the teams have a couple of weeks to recharge their batteries and prepare for the final run-in of the season.

This year, the 2011 Formula One World Championship has been highly entertaining. The only shame has been Vettel’s dominance in the drivers title race, but elsewhere on the track there has been more action than ever before and part of that has come down to new tyre manufacturer Pirelli.

?We?re learning more and more with every race in our first year of Formula One, and fine-tuning our compound choices to benefit from the valuable information that we are accumulating,? Pirelli?s motorsport director Paul Hembery told formula1.com.

The next three races see the Formula One circus head for Belgium, Italy and Singapore.

The Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium is for many F1 fans one of the highlights of the season, usually due to the unpredictable weather and some of the tracks legendary turns.

Pirelli have selected the medium compound as the prime tyre and the soft compound as the option tyre.

For Monza, Formula One teams will run the same tyres as in Spa, but for Singapore Pirelli have picked the soft and super-soft Pirelli tyres.

?We?ve got three of the most thrilling races on the entire calendar coming up, and we believe that we?ve arrived at some tyre nominations that are very well-suited to the characteristics of these very different but equally exciting circuits. Of course there will always be some unknown factors – such as the weather – but the choices we have made are designed to help teams maximise both their performance and their race strategy.?
