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!

  • They have to make the race interesting somehow. The difference between the cars is too much to provide any unexpected result consistently. The format for qualifying is also such that the fastest car mostly starts at the front and so the difference in speed causes the delta in the time difference to increase between those in the front and back. So, FIA has to keep it interesting for people other than "purists" or the drivers at the front.

  • Donut Media, Formula One has tires that last LONGER than fifty miles, as a race must be close to three hundred miles. The hard compound of tire last a minimum of 75 miles. And also, the tires dont last that long because the cars are going so fast, that they just wear fast. The FIA even made the cars slower because Pirelli said the tires wear to fast because of the shear speed. This is a comment written before actually watching the video. Have a good day

  • I think FIA needs a staff overhaul. They make F1 more dangerous by insisting on hazards like failing tires, reduced down force, less money for testing and less time for practice. They make agreements with teams behind closed doors. They change rules back and forth in races. They wait 3/4 of a race to issue a penalty. They ban innovation. It is sad to see the regulating authority literally be the worst part about a sport.

  • I do like how pitstop strategies can affect the race. On F1 with team radios it generates additional attractions towards the sport. Most audience won't really be able to tell how a driver must be feeling while driving on the tyres or racing against each other closely, and them being the best drivers in the world would also be showcased with how each responds to the tyre problems. F1 can't be quite like motogp with the one and done, one tyre race with no team radio nor pitstop. On MotoGP you can have the pure head to head, action packed racing from start to finish, with the tradeoff of not having the strategies and the team radio that F1 has.

  • Just "letting them race" doesn't make the race more enjoyable. Like, just take a look at the Bahrain GP last weekend. Tyre degradation is what made that race so tense. If the tyre lasts the entire race, Verstappen would have just been able to run away with it, because he has the better car and is a driver on Hamilton's level. Instead, tyre degradation allowed Mercedes to do a strategy which allowed Hamilton to take the lead. And then in the end, you had Hamilton on almost dead tyres racing Verstappen on newer ones, allowing them to basically battle it out for the last couple laps in a way which they would have been unable to without Verstappen's tyre advantage due to his car only being marginally better, and dirty air undoing any such advantage. So no, having no pit stops does not make it more fun to watch. Only series where no pitstops can make it more interesting in spec series, so noone can get a major advantage based on car alone and those where there's no dirty air, so overtaking is easy.

  • This is quite dumb - they advertise sustainability and cheaper costs and boring engines that use little fuel, yet they are so wasteful with the tires. To me, it should be other way around, tires that last as long as possible, while engines as powerful and fuel hungry as necessary.

  • I don't know if the FIA knows how to make things interesting. They've banned refuelling because it was dangerous but won't ban tyre changes even if the technology is there to make tyres last a whole race? Tyres exploding are a safety issue. Pit stops should be done for emergencies.

  • The only reason rapid tire degradation is needed is because F1 cars struggle to race each other due to the dirty air they produce. That's also why DRS has to be a thing, or part of it anyway. Hopefully, the return of ground effect cars will be a step towards fixing the issue.
