Formula One official tyre supplier Pirelli has nominated the Ultrasoft, Soft and Medium compounds in order to cope with the demands placed upon the rubber by the tight and twisty Hungaroring, for the 12th round of the F1 season.
Scuderia Ferrari Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen has chosen a more conservative approach than team-mate Sebastian Vettel, with two Mediums, three Softs and eighth Ultrasofts. Sebastian Vettel has taken the aggressive route with nine sets of the purple-marked compound while Lewis Hamilton has opted for just seven sets, but the British driver will take two more of the Soft tyre as part of his allocation, with just one set of Mediums.
Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas will be taking the same route as the Red Bull pairing of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen by taking with two Mediums, four Softs and seven Ultrasofts.
In the midfield, Renault has taken the most extreme route to attacking the Hungaroring by loading up 10 sets of the Ultrasoft tyre for both Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz Jr.
The rest of the midfield teams have all opted for eight sets of the Ultrasoft except for Williams and Sauber who will take nine sets.
