Teams select own tyres for Monaco Grand Prix

Date published: May 17 2017

The ultra-soft tyre option has proven to be very popular with teams ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix.

Pirelli have selected all the tyre choices for the first five races of the season, but Monaco marks the start of teams being able to choose 10 out of 13 sets to be used over the course of the weekend.

Red Bull, Williams and Renault have all taken the maximum allocation of ultra-softs with tyre degradation very low on the streets of Monaco.

Mercedes and Toro Rosso have elected for three sets of super-softs, while the returning Jenson Button has taken on an extra pair of softs with a view to an extended run in practice.
