F1 drivers are very talented at what they do. So are stock car drivers, WRC drivers, WOO drivers, open wheel drivers.
Endurance sports car racing is the purest, most relevent form of motorsport competition because the challenges parallel those encountered in real life. You have to manage a very high performance car on closed off rural roads, downtown street circuits, and natural terrain road courses. The driver must also watch for, and interact with, faster and slower cars. He drives in all weather conditions in day and night. The driver must also develop a sympathy for the equipment he's driving, he has to make it last. Lastly each car has two or three drivers so the setup isn't custom fitted.
