F1 Hungarian GP: Ferrari stacks up super-softs for resurfaced Hungaroring

Ferrari has selected more super-soft tyres than any of its F1 rivals for Hungary as the whole grid favours the softest compound chosen by Pirelli
Ferrari has selected more super-soft tyres than any of its F1 rivals for the Hungarian Grand Prix as the whole grid favours the softest compound chosen by Pirelli.

The Hungaroring has undergone a full resurfacing of the top layer of asphalt around the 4.381km track, with turns 4 and 11 getting new kerbs, which could provide a slight unknown in terms of grip levels for the teams.

Despite this, Ferrari has selected nine sets of super-softs each for Sebastian Vettel, who won in Hungary last year, and Kimi Raikkonen, while the Mercedes, Sauber and Manor drivers have opted for one set less each with eight of the softest Pirelli compounds available.

The rest of the F1 drivers and teams have selected seven sets of the red-banded super-softs to boost the allocation of yellow soft tyres to five, except for Force India who have sacrificed a set of softs for a second set of mediums.

The only other driver to select more than one set of Pirelli mediums is Esteban Gutierrez, with the Haas drivers the only pair to opt for differing tyre selections, which means the Mexican has the joint-fewest yellow-banded soft tyres along with the Ferrari pair (3).
