Force India Captures F1 Crash in Glowy, Extra-Worrying Thermal Vision

By Gary Cutlack on at

F1 driver Paul di Resta made a bit of a mess of things over the weekend, forgetting to slow down and whacking the car in front of him. What made this mundane F1 incident more interesting than most bumps was the way it was captured in heat-detecting thermal vision.

Now, if it's not worrying enough getting your head caved in by a stray car tyre, imagine it's also a burning hot stray car tyre. di Resta's Force India car was the only one in the race to be fitted with the thermal imaging camera, which is a bit of a shame as it does add a strange new layer of detail to the action due to man's natural fear of fire.
