All 20 Formula 1 drivers have opted to load up on super-soft tyres for next month’s Italian Grand Prix at Monza, Pirelli has confirmed.

Pirelli previously confirmed it would be taking its mid-range tyre selection to Monza, giving teams the choice of the medium, soft and super-soft compounds.

The low-degradation nature of both Pirelli’s 2017 tyres and the Monza circuit has prompted teams to load up on super-softs, with most going for an identical strategy.

Fourteen drivers will take 10 sets of super-softs, two sets of softs and one set of mediums to Monza. One set of both the softs and mediums must be reserved for use in the race.

Six drivers - Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas, Sergio Perez, Esteban Ocon, Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen - opted for one set fewer of the super-softs, taking a third set of softs instead.
