there is so much talk about tyre behaviour i wanted to know what happens to a F1 car's tyres over the course of the weekend???
in bahrain it was freakin hot and now its predicted that the conditions are going to be overcast??? what will be the brigstone engineers working on???
thanks in advance...
get them mounted and filled with air...
the tyres will surely like not to have to work at high ambient temps ...but things are two folded...
if its soaking hot theres not as much temperature gain from sitting in the grid and
going at speed ..if it is cold track and cold ambient the temperature deltas are increasing and of course vary a lot more... this influencing the hot pressure and
of course the start (cold ) pressure you need to set..
But really this side is the teams work i very much doubt that Bridgestone is engineering the tyre at weekends very much .They of course chack each and every tyre that went on the car what was going on in terms of laps done and when ...maybe even temps and pressures taken (do F1 teams allow bridgestone guys to take those measurements in practise ?)
then they surely issue bulletins if they feel teams deviate from what they consider safe limits (in terms of cold pressures for example..)
