Few racers would argue with the quote to the left when it comes to the race car, but what about you, the race driver?
The driver needs to be as prepared as the race car. Like any other sport, your lifestyle, physiology and psychology are important factors in your athletic abilities. Where do you think the racing expression "fell out of the seat" came from? Yes, racers are athletes.
Just like other sports, to win at racing requires a process. It's knowing the fundamentals so well you can do them in your sleep. This is well defined when it comes to the car, but what about you, the race driver?
The quote above is just as true when it comes to race driving fundamentals. Those fundamentals can be broken into major groups such as car control and race craft. Very few of the greatest race drivers in history were able to develop these skills alone. All the rest had coaches.
Driver coaching should address at least 9 different major facets of car control and go beyond the obvious to include parameters such as ergonomics and instant in-car results monitoring. Coaching should also address at least a dozen major facets of race craft, including learning or relearning tracks, to elements of fighter pilot tactics. All the while, your coach needs to help you with the athletic training.
