Radical Remould

  [vote for,

The Buchanan Formula 1 team has been pondering the problem of mid-race tyre changes, which are often necessitated by the inpredictable nature of the English weather.

This season, we will be trialling our pit-stop-stopping Radical Remould system.

Should our man have started the race on slick dry- weather tyres, and then find himself berained and in need of tread, the pit crew will simply unroll the electrically-heated red carpet, down the length of their pit lane.

Assuming that the pit crew have, furthermore, remembered to plug it in, our driver need only slow down a little and coast through the pit lane, and then avoid sharp acceleration as he passes through the shallow water trough at the end. He will emerge triumphant and grippy, with the appropriate tread pattern embossed.

       He will emerge with over-vulcanized (ie: charred) tires that will have the grip coefficient of polished marble, yes?

       Not unless the nitrogen jets fail.

       Yes, but then the pit crew wouldn't be able to make waffles in the meantime.

       Ah, yes, I missed the bit about the nitrogen jets.
