Ouch. I think if you've ever had an opportunity to drive a car, on the edge of it's mechanical designs, at a speed where one is constantly correcting for aero affects, counter steering continuously through the corners to maintain a "controlled" slide, without power steering, in 100 to 130 degree heat with no real air flow in the cockpit, I think you might have a different perspective on the issue. Heck, it ain't even easy going straight when you're at speed, never mind the corners. 750 HP, when applied incorrectly, constantly wants to force the back end past the front end. These guys are so good, they make it look easy!Give me a break. The NASCAR drivers are full of it. In NASCAR, 40 drivers between 19 and 65 routinely drive three abreast in the turns, which are only in one direction after all. So, it can't be that hard.
I used to have no real respect for the aptitude required for auto racing, but then I have had the chance to try it on different levels, and it is NUTS crazy hard. I think drivers don't get all the credit they deserve.
And the engineering that goes into setting up a balanced car that is conducive to a drivers style is also an art ....
I am not knocking anyone, just saying, hey, consider the perspectives.
