See Formula 1 tires at work.
Kudos to FOM for bringing interesting innovations to their broadcasts. We've seen pictures of teams with thermal cameras mounted on their cars in the past but this is the first time we see what they are looking at.
Pirelli's Paul Hembery explains tire manufacturers use them regularly for product development and you can see how useful they can be to a team, giving real time feedback of the effects of suspension and alignment settings.
The views are from Paul Di Resta's Force India above and Pastor Maldonado's Williams below.
