See for tyres, there arent many factors that are applied with "physics". But i was wondering, why is formula one tyres so big. Does it produce more grip if it has a bigger area. is there anyway taht it helps to conquor cornerings? Is there any rotational dynamics(moments of inertia) applied in anyway, or there are some other reasons to it? One more thing, can i assume that the car is able to make a good corner because the tyre produces the maximum amount of inertia preventing the car break the centripetal force?
