DOn;t htink F1 drivers are any better or worse than a nascar driver.
The major difference. F1 drivers have reason to complain. When **** goes wrong in an f1 car its catastrophic. Nascars have significantly more material to absorb impact AND the cars aren;t doing anythign near what a formula 1 car is doing.
Driving in cirlces in tigh traffic is definatly difficult. But no where near as demanding as an f1 car. Prime example when you are 30-35 you are at the end of a formula 1 career. The older guys simple can;t do it and be effective anymore. Mark martin is 60 and still winning. That not becasue he is god's gift to racing its becasue its easier to do.
dont; even get me started on the engineering differences.
