Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere.
I'm currently competing in a formula b championship at 49% race length.
The main race requires a mandatory pit stop whereas the 2nd sprint race doesn't.

However I can't find anywhere to choose to start on anything other than slicks.
The tyres present in the edit setup menu are only wet, inters & slicks, whereas in the edit pitstop menu there's mediums & hards to choose from

How do I go about choosing mediums to start the race with as slicks aren't enough to do a 13 or so lap sprint race, and the rest of the field are starting on more suitable tyres?

TIA

You cant, the pit options menu lists every type of tyre available in the game but you can only fit the ones available in the car setup page. If you choose soft, medium or hard at a pitstop you will just end up with slicks.

So how are you supposed to complete a sprint race without having to stop?
Is this another issue being patched?

Ok so in the car setup you have 2 options for dry tyres, Feretti which i believe to be soft and Yiro which should be a medium/hard tyre. Try those :)

Ah ok makes sense, "pirellis" are yellow branded, yiros are white.
Jesus christ devs as much as I love this game publish an online manual!!!
