Video: F1 drivers’ awkward seating position

This video actually provides excellent insight as to how Formula One drivers sit in their cars. Nico Rosberg explains why the drivers must sit so low in the cockpit, reasons for the steering wheel’s placement, as well as going on to state that foam is too “heavy”. That seems a bit extreme but one of the commenters on Youtube said it best: “That’s Formula 1 alright”! Watch the video after the jump.

    I know! It’s crazy! And the fact that they race in that same position for more than 1.5 hours at breakneck speeds is even crazier!
