Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have made largely similar tyre selections for next week’s French Grand Prix.

Both teams have opted for nine sets of the softest available C4 tyres for each of their drivers for the race at the Paul Ricard circuit, along with three sets of the C4 mediums and one of the mandatory C2 hards.

Red Bull has made the same selection for Pierre Gasly, but Max Verstappen will have one more set of mediums in place of a set of softs.

Renault, Haas, Alfa Romeo and Toro Rosso have chosen the largest stock of the soft tyres, with 10 sets for each of their drivers.

Lewis Hamilton won last year’s race on a one-stop strategy.

    1. Does anyone really cares at this point? This is not racing but computer data moderated procession.

      1. So…see you in France!

    2. At least the penalty controversy has taken the heat off the tyres. Pirelli must be relieved.

      And Netflix must still be ecstatic.

      1. Netflix can stretch the contorversy for atleast 3 episodes if they want showing even the appeal and procedings of court. Better get your popcorn buckets ready.
