The driver should be the fittest person on the team is a fair statement. It’s been shown that even a small amount of fatigue or heat stress can performance will be impacted and your chance of making a mistake increases.
But if your race engineer whom also happens to be the co-founder of Wireless Motorsport then you may be in for trouble. Recently when the last race finished early in the day Chris took advantage of it and rode his bicycle home – which was 245 kilometres away still making it home before dinner.
If your race engineer understands the importance of fitness and how it can impeded your driving ability, maybe you should listen, get fitter and ride home with him next time.
So are you as fit as you should be?
