Other than Mercedes AMG Petronas, which only saw its drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg opt for five sets of Pirelli’s supersoft tires apiece, the supersoft preference utilized at Austin at Circuit of The Americas this weekend will continue in the grid for next week’s Mexican Grand Prix.

All remaining teams have selected between six and eight supersoft sets at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, with Scuderia Toro Rosso’s pair of drivers both opting for eight sets of supersofts and only two medium, and three soft sets.

Of note, Haas’ Esteban Gutierrez has selected only one set of medium, then five softs, and seven supersofts.

The supersoft, soft and medium tires are on offer in Mexico, as they are in Austin this weekend.
