Similarities between F1 and horse racing

Although one sport involves motor vehicles and the other comprises of horses, there are many similarities between Formula One and horse racing. Constructors and horse trainers both snap up the best drivers and jockeys respectively. In horse racing, there are 60 racecourses in the UK, with many more across Europe and the rest of the world. A jockey must navigate their horse around the track, finding the best route from the start to the finish. Conditions during the race and prior to the contest have a big impact on F1 and horse racing. Rain doesn’t quite make a race as dramatic in horse racing, however, it can have a big impact on the outcome. A jockey must navigate their horse through the best parts of the track which are not too heavy. In F1 and horse racing, drivers and jockeys both compete for individual honours.
