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

Both Ferrari and Mercedes have brought similar allocations, with Sebastian Vettel taking the exact same allocation as his championship rival Lewis Hamilton. Sauber and Renault have both gone aggressive and are the only teams to bring 10 sets of the hyper soft compound.

    I reckon it would be more interesting if they all had the same allocation.

    Ferrari seem to have chosen a better balance of tyres, I think they realised the aggressive way forward wasn't the way forward, should be a good race strategy wise!
