Ultrasofts the top tyre choice for Austria

Pirelli engineers and Pirelli tyres at Formula One World Championship, Rd7, Canadian Grand Prix,

Pirelli have released details of each driver’s tyre compound selections for next month’s Grand Prix in Austria, with the fastest, ultrasoft rubber proving the most popular choice for use on the Red Bull Ring.

Drivers are permitted 13 sets of dry tyres for the Spielberg event, split between the yellow-marked soft compound, the red-marked supersoft and the purple-marked ultrasoft. All of them have chosen at least seven sets of ultras.

Most conservative in their selection for the July 7-9 event have been Sauber, while McLaren and Force India have been the most aggressive in their choices.
