Many people think that the life of a racing driver is spent testing cars and racing. The reality is that the majority of drivers spend far more time coaching and taking part in fan and sponsor events than they do behind the wheel. Many of these events include us media types, who get to take a few laps under the watchful eye of a pro before being taken out and shown what fast really is.
In case you haven’t heard, recently retired Formula 1 test driver Susie Wolff is fast. Seriously fast. That didn’t stop some dickhead from being disappointed about being stuck with the girl driver at a Mercedes-Benz event. Wolff took his disappointment in stride and proceeded to show him who had the biggest balls in the car.
