Have you ever wondered why Lewis Hamilton complains about tires after 50 miles while your tires can do over 50,000? How can road tires and F1 tires be so different? In this episode we dive into the the high stresses an F1 tire needs to withstand, the difference in the chemical composition of tires, and the incredibly precise engineering that goes into one of Formula 1's most controversial subjects, tire failure. If you like the smell of burnt rubber in the morning, this video is for you!

  • that FIA rule sounds like a complete bullshit to me... The technology improves but they arent allowed to use it because "it isnt entertaining enough" just my opinion...

  • Fun fact: Michelin refused to even apply as the producer of F1 tyres in 2020 because fast degradation was required by FIA (and also because they are still using 13" tyres). Take a look at LMP1 tyres.... FIA wants to maintain the "strategic" part of F1. If the cars were able to drive a whole race without a stop, that would kind of take something out, wouldn't it ?

  • I think the rapid degradation is bullshit. It only encourages tyre management and slows everyone down. Just imagine the races if drivers could go 100% all the time

  • but its also to keep the drivers driving more proper as any mistakes will lessen the tire life and need a pit stop. not just for the super grip, older f1 tires in more powerful cars lasted longer. now its standardized so everyone has to use the same tires increasing the skill gap and making racing much more close. drivers have to be more careful about how much they push so they dont wear tires out too quickly , same thing about regulations about fuel tank sized and no refuelling during the race.

  • Dude! I think pit stops are my favourite thing about F1! There are so many chances to absolutely screw it up. I also feel more of a kinship with those people, over the drivers. Drivers live a life I will never understand, whereas the pit crew? I mean, they probably have mortgages...

  • 2.2 Pounds (lb) = 1 Kilogram (Kg), 1 Mile = 1.6 Km , for F to C you need this formula : (32°F − 32) × 5/9 = 0°C , so 280 MPH = 448 KPH, 162 MPH = 259 KPH , 300F = 149C, 2200 = 1000 Kg, 180 mph = 288kph, 2800lb = 1273 Kg, 150 Miles = 240 Km, 50 miles = 80Km, 120F = 49C, 200F = 93C, 240F = 116C, 230F = 110C, 285F = 141C, Most conversions should be here in order did not list repeats all figures rounded to nearest whole number. If I missed one the formulas are there.

  • That is the dumbest reason to have tires that wear out extremely quickly. I get it if there is a performance trade-off that teams can choose between, but to force it so there are more pit stops because you think that's what fans want to see is ludicrous.

  • More DTM, JGTC, BTCC, and WRC content please? F1 more than anyone needs some tire degradation, the strategy really helps keep the teams on their toes and if Mercedes stubbs theirs on tires or a pitstop then anyone can win! There needs to be abit more freedom in overall car designs with the budget cap though, to reward sweat and ingenuity over big money.

  • I see the FIAs point kind of. They lost me many years ago, as F1 back then was: 20+ cars running 50 laps in exactly the same order as they startet ":-) But exploding tires, I dont know... Its also also ecological a cracy thing to say: We spend billions to make the worst and most waistfull race tire you could think off, and nobody will profit from that, because that tecnology is not transferable to anthing else.

  • The final point about just letting them race would be good if there weren't essentially two classes of f1 team at the moment. If all the teams could compete with one another, tires would be less of a problem. However, forcing strategic putting allows for a bit more competition. 2022 regs hopefully will rectify the competitiveness issue
