Just to throw another wrench into all of this overanalyzing of the art of driving think about this.
There is more than one way to skin a cat, I’ve witnessed and/or raced with very fast drivers that have totally different approaches. For example Mark Dismore Sr. doesn’t appear to move his hands at all while the late great Dan Wheldon absolutely thrashed the kart around the track. Both styles resulted in competitive lap times.
Food for thought at least. Certainly an inexact science.
