Not for you the life of the F1 party animal. You’re in bed at a reasonable hour, prefer 18 holes to lifting dumbbells, and when it comes to spending your cash, you keep it sensible. But while you may eschew the party lifestyle, that doesn’t mean that you’re not a hard-charger on the track. You like to grab a racing car by the scruff of the neck – although you have a tendency to make excuses when it all goes wrong.
You’re the consummate F1 pro. Effortlessly fast on track, while enjoying a vibrant social life off it, you work hard, train hard, and when it’s all over, you enjoy the good things that come with the F1 lifestyle.
You’re the F1 free spirit. You hark back to the days when the drivers were all good mates in the paddock, when power slides were the fastest way of getting round a circuit and when post-race partying wasn’t frowned upon. You’ve got strong, passionate views which you’re not afraid to express, and you don’t suffer fools gladly.
You work hard to give yourself the ‘unfair advantage’ on track – training hard and working on your car set-up to give yourself the best chance of winning. If that means missing some parties, so be it – you’re an F1 driver, not Hugh Hefner. If you’re treated with respect by your team mate, you’ll respect them back, but mostly they’re a rival to be beaten, which you’ll do by driving with elegance and smoothness.
Born in the wrong era, you think F1 was better when the drivers did the business on track and then headed off to the nearest nightclub. You’re an uncomplicated individual, blindingly quick out on circuit, but easy to muck along with off it. You train in the gym because you have to, not because you love it, while enjoying the luxurious, fun-loving life of an F1 driver when the racing’s over.
