No infrared devices please

The FIA has acted to stop the use of infrared devices to heat tyres. The FIA discovered that Super Aguri F1 has been using a frame to hold tyres which consists of electrically-driven rollers and heating elements using infrared lights. These apparently produce more consistent heating than the tyre blankets that are currently used by F1 teams. The stewards ruled that the Super Aguri F1 devices are not blankets and thus cannot be used.
