OK, so we all know what the driver is, right.
I’ve always liked the description that F1 is the pinnacle of open wheel, single seater car racing and arguably the highest level of any motorsport globally.... There's more... drivers are like lightbulbs and you can just unscrew one to replace with another. But I now think that is over-simplified and grossly unfair.
Today’s modern F1 driver is the “supercomputer” responsible for harnessing all of the incredible work of the men, women and machines that developed the car and extracting maximum performance from it.
