F1 teams load up on Super Softs for Italy
22 August 2017 – Formula 1 teams have loaded up on the softest available tyre for the Italian Grand Prix, which directly follows this weekend's Spa-Francorchamps event in a back-to-back sequence.
Pirelli will bring its Super Soft, Soft and Medium compounds to Italy, matching the selection made for China, Bahrain, Azerbaijan, Britain, Hungary, Malaysia, Japan and Brazil.
At the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, all drivers will take either nine or 10 sets of the Super Soft rubber, two or three sets of Softs and just one, mandatory set of Mediums.
As usual, drivers were free to pick 10 out of 13 compounds; a set of Super Softs will be held for Q3, and a set of Softs and Mediums for the race (one of which must be used).
