F1: Red Bull Racing's RB8 donuts in infrared (+video)

From FLIR

FLIR, an innovation partner with Infiniti Red Bull Racing, had the opportunity to capture some great footage at GAMMA Racing Day 2014.

Using a FLIR x6580sc infrared camera, the company were able to capture in high speed, the Infiniti Red Bull car's tires heating up as the driver burned rubber.

Other thermal cameras used were the FLIR T650sc and the FLIR B660.

In the partnership, FLIR will develop solutions using our world-class miniature thermal cameras to provide the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team with unique insights into the thermal characteristics of their cars' components and operations.
