It’s the Tuesday two weeks before a Grand Prix so you know what that means: it’s another reveal day for Pirelli tire set selections.

Ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix on July 3, Pirelli’s softest compound – the new ultrasoft compound – is the most popular compound of choice at the Red Bull Ring.

Ferrari and Renault drivers have each gone for nine ultrasoft sets apiece out of the total of 13 sets allotted for a weekend. The Mercedes and MRT pairs have each gone for eight. Haas is the only team that has gone with six ultrasoft sets.
