Friction - double or quits?

That's what I thought but upon questioning my teacher wasn't too sure about it.

This then leads me on to another point, why do race cars (and various road cars) have wide tyres? As you both put above the width of the tyres will not affect the friction.
Is it to disperse water when it's raining, or to reduce tyre wear, a combination of both or perhaps something else?
