The weird seating position of Formula One drivers

Screen Shot 2012-05-11 at 12.02.25 PM

From Broadsheet.ie: "Merc AMG Petronas driver Nico Rosberg explains the far from comfortable 'prone*/feet-up' piloting stance of the Formula One driver."

*In fact, the position is supine — not prone.

Wrote Jonathon Ramsey on autoblog, "The Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team has been using its drivers to open up the dark world of F1, and in this video Nico Rosberg demonstrates what we've long suspected: the driving position in a Formula 1 car is outrageous, with drivers reclined on a carbon-fiber gynecologist's table pretending to be a seat."

"Watch Nico explain finding a balance between comfort and weight. And how it's kind of hard to see above the wheel."
