Pirelli have released the tyre choices for the Russia Grand Prix, with Mercedes opting for two extra sets of supersoft compound tyres compared to Ferrari.

Rather than choosing two extra sets of supersofts, Mercedes closest rival Ferrari have selected an extra pair of soft tyres while Red Bull Racing and Haas have chosen 10 sets of supersofts.

All of the teams on the grid have only chosen one pair of mediums for the Grand Prix in Sochi, with only Manor Racing opting for two pairs.
