Similar to the style of those seen in IndyCar, these panels can display information like position, time on pitlane, and potentially penalty information.

They have been a great success in the States, and aid greatly for those trackside.

Interestingly, it has been suggested that, of the six panels, two must be located in the actual wheel rim.
