Hamilton and Vettel make same tyre choices for Mexico | 2018 Mexican Grand Prix

Championship contenders Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel have made the same tyre selections for next week’s Mexican Grand Prix.

The pair have selected eight sets of the hyper-soft tyre, the softest rubber in Pirelli’s range, along with three sets of ultra-softs and two of the super-softs.

All the other teams have chosen more sets of the hyper-softs than Mercedes and Ferrari. Renault and Sauber have picked 10 sets for each of their drivers.

Last year’s Mexican Grand Prix was won by Max Verstappen who ran a one-stop strategy, switching from ultra-softs to super-softs.
