These days, if you're a Formula One driver, here's what you do: you drive in 16 motor races a year. Each lasts for between 80 minutes and two hours. So, even if your car is reliable and your season reasonably accident-free, you probably won't clock up much more than 24 hours' actual racing in a full season plus, of course, some practice, qualifying and the inevitable testing. You'd probably do...
