Ferrari will take nine sets of the ultra-soft tyre for next week’s Singapore Grand Prix, two more than closest rivals Mercedes and Red Bull.
The two Ferrari drivers have differed slightly in their choices with Sebastian Vettel taking two sets of the soft, which is the hardest available tyre, while Kimi Raikkonen has just one.
The Italian team scored their most recent victory in last year’s race and are favouring the softest compound available at a circuit where Mercedes struggled last year.
The Mercedes drivers have taken more of the harder rubber, with three sets for Lewis Hamilton and four for Nico Rosberg. Red Bull’s drivers have taken the same allocation as each other, with seven sets of ultra-softs and four super-softs.
The only other drivers to join Ferrari in taking nine sets of ultra-softs are the Haas pair and Sauber’s Marcus Ericsson.
