Drivers Tyre Selections For Australia

The Australian Grand Prix is right around the corner, and Pirelli have revealed the drivers tyre selections for the first race of the season.

Most teams have their drivers working in pairs, selecting the same tyre options all the way through, with the exception of Mercedes, Haas & Sauber. Whether this is down to driver preference, or the teams wanting to experiment with strategies early on is hard to say, in each case the teams choosing to take one extra of the medium compounds. It may also suggest that certain drivers may be going more conservative at the start of the season, unsure of the levels of degradation we are likely to see, even after Pirelli reveealed that we won’t be seeing a similar ‘cliff’ to previous years.
