Pirelli has confirmed the tyre choices each driver has made for the Chinese Grand Prix in just under two weeks.

The Italian marque will bring the C2, C3 and C4 compounds to the race, as it did at the season-opening race in Australia. 

Ferrari has gone more conservatively compared to rivals Mercedes. The Silver Arrows bring 8 sets of the softest C4 compound for both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, while the Ferrari duo will bring seven.

Sebastian Vettel and Bottas will have two sets of the C2 tyre at their disposal, while Charles Leclerc and Hamilton have just once. 

McLaren is the only team to bring nine sets of the C4 compound. Take a look at the full table below.
 

Driver C2 C3 C4
Lewis Hamilton 1 4 8
Valtteri Bottas 2 3 8
Sebastian Vettel 2 4 7
Charles Leclerc 1 5 7
Max Verstappen 2 3 8
Pierre Gasly 2 4 7
Daniel Ricciardo 1 4 8
Nico Hulkenberg 2 3 8
Kevin Magnussen 2 3 8
Romain Grosjean 1 4 8
Carlos Sainz 2 2 9
Lando Norris 2 2 9
Sergio Perez 2 3 8
Lance Stroll 2 3 8

Antonio Giovinazzi 3 2 8

    Eerst maar eens dat korte over en onderstuur window weg bij RB15.
    Iets meer marge beide kanten op dat je (lees Max en Gasly) beter kan afstemmen.
    Oja @RBR, de Honda heeft meer power dus....... ;-)
