It happens around this time every year.

You finally manage to leave the house with nothing more than a T shirt on (well, we normally wear trousers too…) and end up venturing into some supermarket that is colder than one of Neptune’s outer moons.

Well, fear not. F1 tech could be about to warm your frozen fingers and defrost your nose by calling an end to ‘cold aisle sydrome’.

Best of all, this tech could cut supermarkets’ energy usage meaning lower prices for shoppers.
