NEWS STORY
18/10/2016

Mexico race sees some teams take radically different approach to tyre strategy.

While the Toro Rosso duo will take eight sets of the supersoft tyre to Mexico next weekend, their counterparts at 'sister' team Red Bull will take just six and Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg five apiece.

And while Rosberg goes for four sets of the mediums, the hardest compound available, and Hamilton three, Renault drivers Kevin Magnussen and Jolyon Palmer opt for five and four respectively.

The difference between the Mercedes drivers in the hardest compound is carried over to the softs, with Hamilton, like Raikkonen, the Manor duo and Gutierrez taking five sets.

After Toro Rosso, the Williams, Force India, Sauber and Haas duos are adopting the most aggressive strategy next week, each opting for seven sets of the red-banded rubber.
