Be the Complete Racer: Study at the Track

Number 6 in a countdown. Education doesn’t stop once you’re strapped in; there is something to learn at every stage of a racing weekend.
 
The great basketball coach John Wooden is credited with saying, “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.” The coach who led UCLA to 10 NCAA National Championships likely worked with a few players who thought they knew it all. Then they learned a few things more.

If you’ve ever watched the onboard of Ayrton Senna’s amazing qualifying lap at Monaco in 1988, you’d think there isn’t the tiniest fraction of a second left to be found. He got everything out of the car and the track. Any bets on what Senna might have thought watching that same lap? He probably saw a spot or two where he lost some time.
