      Pirelli says it is moving towards a solution which will give teams choice in tyre compounds for 2016.

      One of the proposals from the last meeting of the Strategy Group was for teams to be given freedom to pick between the four available compounds at each grand prix. The current rules have Pirelli picking two compounds ahead of a race weekend.

      Though it has reservations about the feasibility of giving teams free reign on compound choices, Pirelli motorsport boss Paul Hembery says the manufacturer is working on a solution to accommodate the Strategy Group's proposal and hopes to make an announcement in the near future.

      "We're having some pretty good ongoing discussions with the teams and the FIA and we seem to be homing in on a solution that gives the variety of choice they'd like to have and gives us an element of security that strange decisions aren't made," Hembery is quoted as saying by F1i. "So we're hopeful that in the next few weeks we'll be able to convey that to everybody, so that we can start working towards next year."

      Tyres are a point of uncertainty currently, with Michelin recently applying to become sole tyre supplier from 2017 onwards.
