Ultrasoft the dominant choice for Austria


As the F1 Paddock heads to the Red Bull Ring for the Austrian Grand Prix, Pirelli have revealed the drivers’ tyre choice, with ultrasoft compound being the preferred choice.

Interestingly, Mercedes duo Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton have differed in their choices, with the latter opting for an extra set of softs rather than a set of supersoft.

Choosing the most sets of ultrasofts are Renault and Ferrari, who will be taking a combined total of 36 purpled coloured tyres to Austria.

Mercedes weren’t the only team that differed as Williams, Renault, Sauber, and Haas also had their pairings choose different strategies from one another.
