    On a balanced set of tires that include SS,S, and M, I have 3 sets earmarked for the race. They are 1 of each compound. At least 1 of the 2 harder compounds must be used i.e. a soft or medium set in this case. If I want to run SS,S,S on a 2 stop strategy, where I do get an additional set of S compound? Must these be saved from qualifying? All tires marked for practice either used or unused must be returned correct?

    In the case above I have SS and S for Q1, SS for Q2, and a SS for Q3. So if I run only one set of tires for Q1, then the remaining set would be new for the race?

    Thanks for any help!

    Short answer, yes. Just make sure you use the MANDATORY SS for Q3 since it'll be returned to manufacturer anyway. I typically use only one of the two provided tires in Q1 and the unused set is available during the race.
