Pirelli tries out sticker thermometers in Bahrain

Posted on February 27, 2014

As a result of Pirelli’s collaboration with the FIA to ensure a better monitoring of tire usage parameters, the Italian firm is trialling a special type of sticker on each tire tread in Bahrain.

These stickers read the maximum temperature reached by the tyre tread while the tires are being pre-heated by the teams in their tire blankets.

Pirelli prescribes a maximum temperature of 110°C (230°F), which should not be exceeded at any point before the tire takes to the track.

The FIA will ensure that this limit is respected, together with the minimum tire pressures when leaving the pits and maximum camber levels on the track.
