How Formula 1 drivers prepare for races

In order to compete in the fastest competition in the world, teams need to assemble the best engineers and technicians to keep vehicles at their best. However, racing isn’t all about speed and drivers are more than just drivers, they are athletes. With races lasting for roughly 90 minutes, drivers face temperatures that can reach 40°C inside the car. While Formula 1 isn’t the only sport that faces such extreme conditions it is one of the few that can’t escape them. In order to prepare for races, it is essential for drivers to indulge in workouts that tackle aerobic and neuromuscular exercises, but also training related to motor coordination. Training sessions mostly focus on exercises that simulate the motions that drivers are required to perform inside the cars. However, drivers also train other parts of the body, engaging with different sports.
