Pirelli reveals Brazil tyre selections

02 Nov 2016

Pirelli have revealed the individual tyre selections for each driver ahead of next weekend's potential 2016 title decider in Sao Paulo, the Formula 1 Grande Premio do Brasil 2016.

Championship contenders Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg have once again opted for the exact same strategy for the weekend, with both drivers choosing one set of hards, four sets of mediums and eight sets of softs.

Red Bull and Ferrari have opted for different selections however. Red Bull will take one fewer set of softs and one additional set of mediums to Interlagos, while Ferrari's drivers are split - Sebastian Vettel has opted for the same allocation as Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen, but Kimi Raikkonen has added an extra set of hards, and one less set of mediums.

Only three other drivers have also opted for two sets of hards - Force India's Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez, and Haas's Esteban Gutierrez.

Williams meanwhile have been amongst the most aggressive - in what will be his farewell Grand Prix in Brazil, Felipe Massa will have nine sets of softs to use over the three days.
