Racecraft :

Racecraft is a reference to the driver’s all-around skill, comprising their knowledge of racing theory and their ability to make good decisions, getting them to the finish line in the shortest amount of time.

Racecraft considers things like, a sense of their car and those around them, the ability to overtake, and understanding their fuel and tires to maximise their qualifying and race pace.

Racecraft will often be referred to when one driver yields to another. They know, inherently, that now is not the time or it is not their day, so they will respect the challenging driver and give space for the move.
