Formula 1’s slick tires were designed for dry conditions. Their large surface area ensures maximum contact and grip. Wet tires (intermediates and full-wets) have tread patterns designed to disperse the water on wet surfaces, reducing aquaplaning and providing traction during rainy conditions. In light to medium rain, intermediates should be used. Full wets will work in heavy rain.

What are power units in Formula 1 cars?

A Formula 1 power unit comprises a hybrid internal combustion engine (ICE) and an Energy Recovery System (ERS). The ICE is a V6 turbocharged engine. Meanwhile, the ERS uses energy from the car exhaust and braking system to produce additional power. The combination of these technologies not only boosts performance but also increases efficiency, contributing to the fascinating blend of speed and advanced engineering in the sport.
