What makes the difference? Sports psychologist Saul Miller says ace race drivers own these skills:
- The ability to focus and think clearly in the face of multiple stimuli.
- The capability to read situations intuitively and act.
- Quick reaction time.
- Rapport with the car. Example: World champion Michael Schumacher, unlike many drivers he leaves behind, is known for working within his car’s limitations instead of pushing it to do something it can’t.
