Mercedes go conservative with Mexican Grand Prix tyre choices


Pirelli Media

Mercedes have opted for a conservative tyre strategy for the Mexican Grand Prix, with the 2016 championship winning team selecting just five sets of the supersoft tyre for each of its drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton.

The pair have selected different amounts of the soft and medium, with Rosberg taking one more of the medium than Hamilton.

Meanwhile their nearest rivals, Red Bull and Ferrari, have six of the supersoft for each of its drivers.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo will have four sets of the soft and three of the medium, the same as Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, whilst Kimi Raikkonen has an extra set of the softs.

The most aggressive strategy is from Toro Rosso, with eight sets of the supersoft available to each of its drivers.
