Ferrari goes supersoft for Hungary


Although the choices were actually made some time ago, Ferrari will be hoping that its gamble of relying almost entirely on supersofts for next week's race in Hungary pays off.

The Italian team will have nine sets of the red-banded tyres for the track where grip is notoriously low and overtaking barely possible.

Mercedes has opted for eight sets of the softest rubber, as have Sauber and Haas, whilst the rest go for seven sets.

Williams, Red Bull, Renault, Toro Rosso, McLaren and Manor all opt for five sets of softs, whilst Mercedes, Force India and Sauber opt for four. Ferrari is taking just three.

All but Force India have opted take just one set of the hardest compound (medium), though at Haas, Gutierrez has followed the Silverstone team's example.

Indeed, the Mexican's decision to take two sets of medium and three soft is the only example of teammates choosing a different strategy.

The soft and medium are the mandatory race tyres.
