Pirelli has announced the tyre selections each driver has made for the Japanese Grand Prix in two weeks. The Italian tyre supplier selected the medium, soft and super soft compound for the weekend, with drivers choosing ten sets in total, while three are designated by Pirelli.

 It is the first time since Italy that Pirelli is bringing the medium tyre, and its the second last time it will be used this season. Ferrari has gone aggressive with its choice, bringing just one set of the medium compound for both Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.

It has opted to bring three more sets of the super soft compound than its rivals Mercedes. Take a look at the full list below;
