2016 Russian GP: Red Bull and Haas go aggressive with their tyre strategy

Published

on

2016 Formula 1 tyre rules allow each driver is allocated 13 sets of dry tyres for the race weekend. Also each driver must bring at least one set of each of the three allocated compounds.

Most teams have only gone with the one mandatory medium option. Red Bull and Haas F1 have adopted an aggressive tyre strategy, selecting ten sets of super-soft tyres for Daniel Ricciardo and teammate Daniil Kvyat, and Haas for Esteban Gutierrez and Romain Grosjean.

The super-soft option provides more track speed. The disadvantage is they must do more pit stops to get you to the end of the race.

Mercedes duo Nico Rosberg and team-mate Lewis Hamilton have both opted for four sets of the Soft compound and eight of the Super-soft, they could make predicable three-stop strategy.

Ferrari has adopted a more conservative choice for Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, with six sets each of soft and super-soft rubber. Manor Racing the only team opted more one set medium compound.
