This new addition to the Science behind Sports series examines not only the physical aspects needed to be a race car driver, but also how the driver and the car work together. The title talks about not only the physical and mental demands a driver endures while racing, but also the mechanics of the car and what types of science are used to evaluate both the car and the driver.
