Pirelli has offered a first glimpse of what its Formula 1 tyres will look like in 2017, after unveiling a showcar fitted with the wider rubber in Monaco on Saturday.
As part of the planned overhaul of the sport's technical regulations next year, Pirelli will be supplying teams with much wider tyres, reminiscent of those used in the early 1990s.
The tyres have not yet been tested, with the Italian firm's 2017 development programme having so far been limited to running 2016-size tyres with certain elements of next year's rubber.
However, the first running of the tyres with modified 2015 cars to simulate next year's downforce levels is scheduled to begin in August.
Ferrari, Red Bull and Mercedes will be taking part in that phase of the development process.
Pirelli, however, has given the first indication of how the 2017-spec tyres will look by equipping a branded showcar with them.
The car - which is developed from an old Toyota F1 car - has been updated to include...
Thought I'd share a couple photos I took at Carb day today.
This was a pretty cool moment. We were on our way to find some seats for practice, we're just walking towards this white van that was parked between the Tower Terrace grandstand and the Pagoda, they open the back of the van and boom....there it is...the Borg Warner.
Here's a shot of the Pagoda and winner's circle

I was instantly star struck...Emerson Fittipaldi for Christ's sake....one of the greatest driver's to...

NASCAR veteran Mark Martin, elected this week to the Hall of Fame, will drive the pace car in Sunday’s 57th running of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“When the speedway called to ask me if I’d do it, my first reaction was, ‘Hell, yeah!’ ” Martin said in a statement. “Originally I’d planned to be at Indy, but now I get to do the ‘double’ in a way, and I can say I’ll be driving at Charlotte.
“Charlotte Motor Speedway was always my favorite race track. I was fortunate enough to have a lot of success there, including winning a Coke 600. Bruton and Marcus (Smith) always put on a fabulous show, and this will be cool to lead the field to green in front of thousands of fans that I enjoyed racing for all those years.”
Martin plans to attend the start of Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 before heading to Charlotte Motor Speedway for his pace-car driving duties.
The native of Batesville, Ark., won four Sprint Cup Series points races at Charlotte in a career that...
