The guys from Driven Media managed to get a set of Formula 1 tires from Pirelli. They wanted to mount the rubber on a Caterham 270R, but immediately ran into problems. On a road car, the wheels are secured with four or five bolts, not - like on a Formula 1 car - with just one bolt. So the men had to design and manufacture an adapter themselves.
Once the Formula 1 tires were on the Caterham, the disappointment started. The open sports car slides in all directions on the special motorsport rubber. Yes, a Formula 1 tire has otherworldly amounts of grip, but only at a temperature around 100 degrees Celsius. And you can never reach such a temperature with a street car.
At lower temperatures, Formula 1 tires are even much worse than regular tires. They are slippery and generate hardly any grip. It almost looks like the Caterham 270R in this Youtube video is driving on ice, it has so little traction. Would it help to warm them up with some tire warmers? You can see it in the attached video.
