Pirelli has selected its softest available tyres for this year’s Austrian Grand Prix, which is the same allocation as was used in 2016.
Drivers will be able to select from the soft, super-soft and ultra-soft compounds for the ninth round of the season at the Red Bull Ring.
They are required to have one set of ultra-soft tyres available for Q3 and one of each of the other two tyre types available for the race.
Next weekend’s race in Spain will be the final time this year Pirelli chooses how many sets of each tyre are available to each driver. From the Monaco Grand Prix drivers will choose ten of their thirteen tyre sets, as was the case at all races last year.
