    Check out the heat coming off of the engine of Schumaker's car in this photo from the Canadian GP.

    MMM, great picture.
    Its amazing how much heat comes out of those cars. Its even more apparant while at speed as the heat vapor gets swept up by the rear aerodynamics of the car.
    I wonder how hot those exhaust pipes get?

    Another thing that i find amazing is that these motors can overheat VERY quickly. They cant stand still for a long time idling. At places in Malaysia where its hot and humid, they placed dry ice or something in the radiator air ducts during idling, just prior to the formation lap.
