McLaren go conversative for US GP

Pirelli has unveiled teams’ tyre selections for the upcoming United States Grand Prix with neither title protagonist going all in on one compound.

Formula 1’s tyre supplier has made the ultrasoft, supersoft and soft compounds available for the race at the Circuit of the Americas.

Lewis Hamilton has chosen seven of the purple tyres, three red and three yellow.

The Brit could wrap up the World title on the Sunday, he only needs to win and have Sebastian Vettel finish third or lower.

As for Vettel, he’s gone with eight ultrasofts, three supersofts and two softs.

McLaren have taken the most conservative options with Fernando Alonso taking five ultrasofts, two supersofts and six soft sets.
