Pirelli has announced the tyre selections each driver has made for the Spanish Grand Prix weekend in just under two weeks. Drivers had to choose from the medium, soft and super soft tyre for the weekend, and you can view the table below to see the choices each driver made.

The most popular tyre for the weekend is the red-walled super soft tyre, however Mercedes has gone conservative with its choice. It has opted to bring just five sets of the softest tyre, as well as five sets of the yellow-walled soft compound. 

Williams, who picked up its first points of the season in Azerbaijan on Sunday, has gone aggressive as Sirotkin and Stroll bring ten and nine sets of the super soft compound to the weekend respectively.

  • Kinda conservative choices, innit? Honestly, I think we could've gone soft, super soft and ultra soft for this track. By the way: when are we gonna see the hard options getting used? Because at this rate we might just remove them entirely. Saves Pirelli cash, and makes it easier for fans to catch up.
