Ferrari has chosen softer tyres than its closest rivals for the British Grand Prix, as it also has for this weekend’s race in Austria.

However Sauber has made the most agressive selection for the Silverstone race, opting for nine sets of the soft tyres and just one set of hards.

Championship leaders Mercedes have stocked up on medium compound rubber for its drivers, bringing five sets.

Force India is the only team to have nominated more than two sets of the hard tyre, which is making its second appearance this year after the Spanish Grand Prix.

    1. The title is not right. “Ferrari go softer and harder (again) for the British Grand Prix.”

    2. It should be noted, that all compounds are quite hard.
