Formula One: Split tyre compound strategy from the Mercedes duo

GP UNGHERIA F1/2015

Pirelli have announced the driver choices for tyre compound allocation for the first round of the 2016 Formula One World Championship.

Unsurprisingly there is little variation in tyre compound choice for the drivers, with most teams electing to make the same allocation for each driver. Notable exceptions to this are the Mercedes drivers with Hamilton electing to use an additional set of soft tyres over Rosberg choosing leaning toward an additional medium compound set of tyres.

Teams electing to weight their allocation toward the supersoft compound would logically be looking toward a multiple pit stop strategy in the race or expect to require multiple runs in early qualifying sessions.

It should be noted, drivers made tyre allocation decisions before the new qualifying process was agreed.

    Should the drivers not be given the option to amend their original , particularly as the is rule change happened after their original choice.
