Of course we all know that it takes supreme fitness and concentration to be an F1 driver, but what about reaction times? It seems obvious that to be a great driver you need to be able to react to everything a) quickly and b) correctly – one mistake in a race and it can be game over.
So many of the sport’s great moments are down to the rapid reactions to other cars, but here in a video from Force India we get to see just how quick F1 driver reactions really are – in short, they’re superhuman. And that’s from Ted Kravitz, who we all think is rather super himself.
Enjoy this rather incredible and fun video from Nico Hulkenberg in a Force India in 2016.
