Lewis Hamilton was the latest driver in the F1 grid to test the upcoming Pirelli 18-inch tires that will be introduced when the new regulations come into place in 2022.

Mercedes is continuing its testing at the Imola circuit after a chaotic Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, becoming the third team to test the new tires for next year.

Hamilton is in charge of driving this Tuesday; the Briton continues to make more laps around the Imola circuit before his teammate Valtteri Bottas takes over for a test run on Wednesday.

Every team, except Williams, is expected to test the new tires before the 2022 regulations come effective.
