Ferrari have selected fewer sets of ultrasoft tyres than both Mercedes and Red Bull for the Monaco GP.
Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen will each have one set of softs, two sets of supersofts and 10 sets of ultrasofts, which are making their F1 debut, available to them in Monte Carlo.
Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen will have one set fewer of the purple-marked tyres after picking two sets of the softs, suggesting they will use the yellow-banded rubber during the opening stages of Practice One.
While most teams have gone as soft as possible, Toro Rosso and Force India stand out after picking three sets of softs, three supersofts and seven ultrasofts for their drivers.
McLaren have also differed from the favoured tyre choice with one set of softs, five supersofts and seven ultrasofts available to Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso.
