Why Formula One Racing Is A Great Place For Testing Quality Tires

Sep 5, 2008
Formula one will be the best place for the tire manufacturers to prove their supremacy. The companies that provide their tires for formula one racing are the Michelin, bridge stone, Dunlop, Pirelli, Good year, fire stone etc. All of them are leading manufacturer in tires with their research and development growing day by day. Tires are the deciding factors in the Formula one racing. Tires should be used according to the conditions in the racing tracks like hot and wet conditions. Let us have a discussion that will help in gaining some knowledge about the tire types that are used in the racing.

According to the design of the tread there are three variations known as the wet tires, slick tires and the intermediate tires. The wet tire is used in the wet track conditions in which it will remove a large amount of water from the track and allows the car to have a grip on the track. The slick tires are the one that is used in all kinds of race which suit the dry tracks. As the name suggests the intermediate tires have a thread cut that is very much capable of removing the water from the track and also have a considerable grip to the racing surface.

The pressure in side the tire is more important to be considered in racing circuits. If the pressure is low, then the speed of the car is affected along with a possible chance of the car touching the ground. This will result in crashing of the car. If there is more pressure then the grip of the car is very less. The gas that is used in formula one tire is nitrogen gas that is not used for common purposes. The normal pressure that most car company in formula one uses is 1.1 bars.

McLaren formula one team uses the tires that are made by Bridge stone. They use the Potenza model of tires manufactured by them for better grip and durability. Similar kind of tire is used by the Ferrari team also. Most of them use bridge stone model of tires in racing circuit. But they choose the size of the tires according to the suggestions from their technical team. Customized tires are made for each team by bridge stone. The Michelin tires have faltered in the 2006 season which made a down fall to their business in formula one.
