At the start of every race weekend each driver is given 29 sets of tyre. 11 sets of dry’s, 6 of the harder prime , 5 of the
..softer options, 4 sets of intermediates and 3 sets of wets. That’s 1044 per team this season alone. 11,484 sets of tyres per season. One set of primes are sent back to the supplier before the start of practice 2 and one of each specification before practice three.This leaves the driver with 8 sets of dry’s and 4 set’s  of each compounds for the rest of the event. Now that’s a lot of rubber!
