If the Sao Paulo Grand Prix Sprint taught us anything, it is that the race itself is set to be a two-stop, at the very least.
Comments from Williams' Alex Albon from earlier in the weekend suggested that the Hard white-walled tyre was unsuitable, indicating that the race would be run on a mixture of Softs and Mediums.
This is in line with Pirelli's predictions for the 71-lap race, with two-stoppers the quickest way to complete the race.
The prediction from Pirelli is to start on the Softs and run until Lap 17-23 before a switch to the Mediums.
This second stint is set to last until Laps 46-52 before switching to a another set of the Soft C4 rubber for the run to the flag.
Alternatively, a double Medium stint stopping on Laps 20-26 and Lap 48-54 is possible before the switch to Softs for the final charge.
This is where Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc and Lando Norris all hold a potentially vital advantage.
The trio all have a brand-new set of the Soft tyres available of those expected to be in contention for the win.
Mercedes are at a disadvantage with only one new set of Mediums compared to two for the Red Bull and Ferrari drivers.
The full strategic options and remaining tyre sets are available below.
