Pirelli revealed the three tyre choices for the 2018 Formula 1 Mexico GP with the new hypersoft compound being one of them.

The Mexico GP to be held during the October 26-28 date following the US GP will feature the red-coloured supersoft, the purple-coloured ultrasoft and the pink-coloured hypersoft compound.

This combination has already been used in Monaco and Canada in the 2018 season so far, while Pirelli has already revealed that the hypersoft compound will also be used for the races in Singapore and Russia later in the season, before Mexico.

As the rule states, the teams will get 13 set of tyres for the whole weekend from Pirelli, with one set of the softest compound to be kept by the Top 10 drivers to use in Q3. After the completion of qualifying, the Top 10 drivers will have to return that set, while the other drivers can keep it for the race.

For the races, each driver has to keep one set each of the two harder compounds available for the weekend, while the rest 10 sets they are free to choose from the three available compounds for the particular driver.
