You might think driving a car is a low-energy pursuit, but racing a Formula 1 car for up to two hours is a very different matter. F1 drivers must achieve fitness levels similar to athletes to build the strength and stamina to survive the rigors of a race—which means training like athletes do.

F1 cars aren’t built for comfort. There’s very little compliance in the suspension; the seat is hard carbon-fiber shell; and, once at racing speed, the driver is hit by forces many times that of gravity as the car accelerates, decelerates, and goes around corners. For example, because of the effect of engine braking, aerodynamic downforce, and energy-recovery systems, simply lifting your foot off the throttle while traveling at speed makes the car slow down sharply—about as much as if you hit the brakes in your road car hard enough to make all the wheels lock up. And that’s before the F1 driver starts braking.

At Monza in Italy, for example, the cars must slow from over 200 miles per hour to just 30 miles per hour for the first turn. That takes just 100 meters and around 1.9 seconds, during which the driver is subjected to over five times the force of gravity while standing on the (unassisted) brake pedal with a pressure equivalent to doing a 135-kilogram single-leg press in the gym.

Cornering forces also put the drivers through levels of physical stress common to fighter pilots, particularly in the neck area. Drivers target this area in the gym, along with other parts of the body that must grapple with the car—but here they have to be careful: muscle bulk alone isn’t the answer. Adding muscle also adds weight, and since the driver is counted as part of the car’s minimum weight allowance, heavier drivers can be at a disadvantage.

Cardiovascular fitness is also essential because drivers have to manage the onboard electronic systems of the car while racing. Fatigue would diminish their ability to do that.

Do you like Star Wars? What are you looking forward to in 2019?
It seems we've got a tight schedule.

I'm especially hyped for the Fallen Order video game. I hope it's an RPG and that it has a decent combat system like RoTS game.

Episode 9 should clarify pretty much everything. This instalment concludes the Skywalker saga.

"The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. The series follows the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic."

As for TCW season 7, it should be informative and compelling. And I hope it ends just like Clone Wars 2005 mini-series- during the battle of Coruscant, but it'll most likely end with/during the siege of Mandalore.

(just some genuine thoughts)

You don't necessarily need to adhere to one ideology. There's a way to transcend duality, which would mean to use dark and light to your advantage.

Jedi oppose emotional entanglements, cos' obsession and possessiveness lead to folly and obliquity. If you hold onto something or someone beyond its time, you set your selfish desires against the Force, which means you must learn to let go of attachments and everything you fear to lose.

Sith utterly embrace devilry and obscurity without moderation, restraint or fear, that's why they become a/the vessel of darkness. The only and one reality of the Sith- the rule of two- one to embody power the other to crave it. Here's a vital quality of the Sith - Youtube.com

"Denying or attempting to utterly control emotion, Revan felt, was a fool’s game. Jealousy was actually the result of ill-prepared Jedi being overwhelmed by feelings they had never learned to face. Revan believed Jedi could be taught to use positive emotions like love and happiness to strengthen their connection to the Force in the same way that hatred and anger gave power to those who followed the dark side.

They didn’t understand that the Force was alive. They couldn’t accept that it had evolved beyond their staid teachings." Moddb.com

I haven't seen it yet. I'll most likely watch it one of these days or preferably on Blu Ray later on. I've heard that a lot of heroes perish. :/

On a side note, I watched the cartoon version the other day - Youtube.com
