Interview with Allan McNish

Interview with Allan McNish (ex Formula 1 driver, Le Mans winner, etc, so he is the real deal). This video shows how good of instructors we have.



Start from 11:20. Talks about hands, driving positons, where your hands should be, how you should hold the steering wheel.

At around 15:00, he talks about not forcing the car in a turn, and letting it go wide (use the track). This is exactly like at Turn 3a at Pacific Raceways.

15:40 talks about feet and braking, and weight transfer.

19:50 talks about suspension setup.

21:45 looking ahead.

25:10 being one with the car (from feedback to seating).

Does he mention the importance of observation skills anywhere?

He talks about keeping your vision one segment ahead of where you are, if that's what you're asking.

No, he is mocking me because someone already opened the same thread earlier today
