Formula 1 heads to the United States for the Miami Grand Prix this weekend, with the Sprint format in play once again after an action-packed event in China last time out.

Official F1 tyre suppliers Pirelli have selected their midrange compounds for this round – the C2 as hard, C3 as medium, and C4 as soft – to tackle the 5.412-kilometre track that flows around the Hard Rock Stadium, the same compounds that were in use in Shanghai.

As the Sprint format again features, the usual dry tyre allocation drops from 13 sets to 12 (meaning two C2 hards, four C3 mediums and six C4 softs), while the number of wet-weather sets remains the same (five intermediate and two wet).

According to Pirelli, the Miami Grand Prix is a classic one-stop race, with hard and medium compounds the outright favourites for teams to go for.

Last year, winner Max Verstappen started from ninth on the grid on hard tyres before switching to mediums, while the other two drivers who made it to the podium, Sergio Perez and Fernando Alonso, went the other way (medium then hard).
