A burnout is when a OK, so we all know what the driver is, right. I've always liked the description that F1 drivers are like... There's more... powers the rear wheels while restraining the front.
The Today's F1 cars are running 18-inch wheels (up from 13 inches in recent years) with the widths unchanged - 305mm... There's more... spin on the road surface, creating friction and smoke. If done long enough the rubber will be stripped from the tyres and they will blow.
