Mercedes in contrast are among the most conservative, taking six sets of the ultrasoft - a choice echoed by Force India and Haas. Ferrari are in the middle, electing for seven sets of the ultrasoft.
Despite the punishing demands of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, Pirelli have opted for their three softest compounds - the soft, supersoft and ultrasoft tyre.

Lewis Hamilton has four sets of softs to choose from - the joint-most of any driver - while his team mate Valtteri Bottas has three - as do Ferrari duo Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.
