Pirelli and the Formula One teams have agreed which days will be given over to testing new tyre developments during the season.
A plan for teams to assist F1′s official tyre supplier with testing during the season was reached following the row last year over Mercedes and Ferrari conducting private tests for Pirelli.
The tyre testing will take place within the existing in-season tests. Each team will devote one of its two days at one of the tests to conducting tyre development work for Pirelli:
