The demanding Sepang circuit, which this year will host for the last time the Grand Prix of Malaysia, will be with the tyres, and soft superblandos for the celebration of an extreme race for the heat and humidity present.
The layout is, in addition, very hard with the tires, because the weather conditions will be linked to the presence of several hard braking and fast corners and long, that raise the levels of lateral load considerably.
For this reason Pirelli has given up on using the ultrablando, but that has not prevented him from McLaren and Williams opt for ten games superblandos. Ferrari has also chosen a daring choosing nine, two more than their rivals from Mercedes, which as a counterpart will be able to have up to four (Bottas) and five (Hamilton) sets of soft.
Carlos Sainz has chosen the middle way and enjoy all eight sets of tyres superblandos, four soft, and only one, means that you will have to save for the race.
