You know how it looks like driver’s of Formula 1 racers are little more than a head? I mean, like horse jockeys, the smaller in stature the better when it comes to drivers but even then, you’d think you’d see some shoulders or something.
Well, as it turns out, it’s not like they’re sitting in nice, comfortable chairs that provide a commanding view of the road as they would in, say, a Lincoln Navigator. No, they are pretty much reclined in order to both keep them safe and the center of gravity as low as possible.
Have a look at the video above courtesy of the AMG-Petronas YouTube channel to see team driver Nico Rosberg give you the low-down (literally, I’d say) on how it all works, and see if you still want to be a top-flite race car driver.
