What is the temperature of a Formula 1 tire?

What is the temperature of a tire in a F1 car during running in a race or qualifying?

The tires are usually at a temperature between 100 and 130 degrees celcius, depending on the compound in use. Ultra soft, super soft and medium tires work better at a colder temperature, somewhere between 90-110. Soft and hard versions work optimal in a bit higher temperature.
