|Mercedes can run harder tires because their car is so superior|
Pirelli has confirmed the tires that each driver will bring to the Monaco Grand Prix in two weeks' time.
The Italian marque is bringing the softest allocation available to it, with the C3 being the hardest compound, the C4 the middle and the C5 the softest.
The C5 compound is the clear favorite for the weekend, as Monaco is a low degradation circuit. However, Mercedes has brought one extra set of the C4 tire compared to rivals Ferrari and Red Bull.
Racing Point and Williams have also chosen to bring a more conservative selection for the weekend compared to the other teams.
