Of course, driving isn’t the only career in motorsport. The driver is just one cog in a much larger machine, each highly-talented team member plays a crucial role and shares in the success. Roles range from the deeply technical, such as engineering and software development, to the business-focussed, such as marketing, finance and legal.
