Drivers favour soft tyre in Brazilian Grand Prix tyre picks


The Formula 1 teams and drivers have favoured the soft Pirelli tyres for the penultimate round of the 2016 season in Brazil.

The race at the Interlagos circuit takes place next weekend and will prove vital in the title fight, as Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton battle for the championship.

Both contenders have gone for the same tyre choices for the Brazilian Grand Prix and will have one set of the hard compound, four mediums and eight sets of softs at their disposal.

The vast majority of drivers will have seven or eight soft compound sets available over the weekend, with only four drivers opting for more than one set of the hard tyre.

The Williams duo of Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa have gone slightly more aggressive with their choices, ditching a set of mediums to boost their soft tyre tally to nine each.

Here’s the full run-down of the tyre picks for Brazil:
