Petronas Syntium with CoolTech Fights Heat in F1 and Road Cars
At a recent driver meet & greet, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas told us about how excessive heat in their F1 cars tough on drivers and on engines.
While the two stars had their own methods to cope with the heat, the engines on their Mercedes AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+ cars had Petronas Syntium with CoolTech.
Excessive engine heat occurs deep within the engine, regardless of external weather conditions; it affects all cars, whether on the track and on the road. In fact, excessive engine heat can be aggravated by modern day driving conditions such as traffic congestion, driving up steep inclines and continuous acceleration on highways. As a result, critical components of the engine are damaged over time and performance is compromised.
