MODEL RELEASED. Formula One car preparation. Mechanics preparing a racing car for a test session. The car tyre in view is in an electronic tyre warmer. The tyre rubber is warmed before being put onto the car to improve performance. As the rubber heats up, it softens and its surface area increases. This improves the mechanical grip of the tyre with the track surface, thereby improving braking, accelerating and cornering.
