The purple-striped ultrasoft tyre has once again proved to be very popular with teams ahead of the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix, which is scheduled to take place on the Marina Bay Street Circuit
However, there are split strategies at Mercedes and Scuderia Ferrari with alternative approaches taken for title rivals Lewis Hamilton and German driver Sebastian Vettel. Lewis Hamilton has been allocated an extra set of soft tyres, while team-mate Valtteri Bottas has decided to take on one more set of red-striped supers.
Sebastian Vettel, meanwhile, also has two lots of soft tyres to play with, but just one set of supers in order to make room for ten sets of ultrasoft tyre. In comparision, Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen also has ten sets of ultras, but one set of supersofts and an extra pair of softs.
Bar Mercedes, and Toro Rosso’s Carlos Sainz, the rest of the field have all opted for ten sets of ultras to be used for the next round of the 2017 Formula One championship, the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix. The Haas drivers have chosen most conservatively, with four sets of super-softs and eight ultra-softs.
