How Lewis and Jenson Prepped For the British Grand Prix


McLaren team mates Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button test out the Silverstone track.

Button and Hamilton demonstrate that, even with good mates, the competition to win is hard to overcome. Scientists have studied F1 drivers and found them to be wired differently than the rest of us – more overtly competitive and decisive. As this video shows, even when the cars are scaled down, the driver’s competitive egos are not.
