This is every car from the final at Las Vegas warming its tires and using launch control. I think its pretty interesting how they all launched a bit differently. Obviously different cars, but aren't all but one running the Sadev gearbox? and aren't they all on a control tire?

Control tire, yes. I believe there are at least 3 different gearboxes in use, though this isn't for the box.
It's mostly to clean the tire surface off of debris. Any heat that may be generated is gone by the time you get to the actual green light.
It's one of those things that they allow, so once one team does it, they all do it.
A more interesting note is that Sverre does it twice...
