What a Formula 1 Driver Sees When He’s Going 220 MPH
Elite athletes are different from regular people. Case in point: Most of us drive cars, but we don’t do it the way race car drivers do. German professional race car driver Nico Hülkenberg of the Sahara Force India Formula 1 team recently put on a special pair of eye-tracking goggles before racing around a track while being filmed by Sky Sports F1.
Any F1 fan would expect quick reflexes—this is a sport where cars can go over 220 mph—but it’s still astonishing to discover how much information a driver like Hülkenberg can process in a 10th of a second.
Watch the video below for a newfound appreciation of speed.
