Pirelli announce driver tyre selection for Melbourne
Pirelli announces the number of tyre sets and compound choices made by each driver for the Australian Grand Prix.
Most drivers have chosen similar quotas to their teammates, but Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg have gone separate routes with their choices.
Hamilton has elected to have one Medium set of tyres, four Soft sets and six Supersoft sets, while Rosberg will have two sets of Mediums, five sets of Softs and six sets of Supersofts at his disposal.
Romain Grosjean and Esteban Gutierrez – drivers of the all new Haas F1 team – along with Sauber drivers Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson have also opted for different tyre allotments to use during the season opening weekend.
