It’s the Tuesday the week and a half before a Grand Prix, which means the latest round of Pirelli tire selections is out.

For the Singapore Grand Prix, all teams with the exception of Haas have gone for either nine or 10 sets of Pirelli’s ultrasoft compound, the softest on offer.

Notably, the Mercedes AMG Petronas team has gone for nine sets while Scuderia Ferrari has gone for 10. Another minor note is Lewis Hamilton going with two sets apiece of softs and supersofts, and Valtteri Bottas going for one soft and three supersoft sets.

Sebastian Vettel meanwhile has opted for two soft sets and only one supersoft set.
