Belgian Grand Prix: Tyre Selection (Pirelli)
So, it might be the summer break but on The Formula 1 Girl, you’ll still be able to keep up with the latest and find out what’s happening in the world of Formula 1.
In this post, we’re taking a look at the Belgian Grand Prix Tyre Selections which shows that Red Bull, McLaren and Williams have chosen a more aggressive tyre choice for the Belgian Grand Prix.
There’s quite a difference in tyre choices – not only for the teams but also the between the drivers.
Many teams seem to be picking different tyres for each of their drivers which also means different strategies and that’s something that we always enjoy seeing.
