If before we were told to take at least one lap to warm up the tires, now there a video for it which also proven that heavy breaking is the most effective way to "warm" up the tires rather than swerving it around.

MOTO thermal on board - Laguna Seca:

Before watching this video...swerving vs heavy breaking is's more like a myth or THEORY that you can argue (going side to side also put stress = heat....but now there's a science to it - can't argue with that. As a matter of fact swerving and heavy breaking won't even matter since heating up the tires would take at least one lap. (although it not like yesterday this thermal cameras being produced but hey its always good to actually see the whole process... it's more educational in a way).

For the record...doesn't really do a whole hell of a lot on a car either. NASCAR you will also notice them repeatedly speeding up and braking under caution while also swerving. This generates more heat than the swerving. F1 cars generate pretty much all of their heat with a massive sideways burnout before taking their grid spot. Any swerving done in an open wheel car is more of an attempt to retain heat vs generate heat. On a bike...I'm not even sure how it ever became a thing someone would do.
