    Is there any pictures or videos that show exactly how much an F1 diver can see from the cockpit?

    Here’s a helmet cam from David Coulthard:

    There’s this, which looks a little low: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlWhQJszC1I

    Or this, which looks a little high: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kONSQIW30vY&feature=related

    There’s also this, slightly from the side, which probably gives the best view: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpLjvkh4hQE&feature=related

    Thanks, I think the Kubica one is probably the better view.

    I was also interested on how much the driver could see to the side. Considering the now fairly high protection and the limited amount the drivers can turn their heads due to the Hans device.

    I don’t know why my link didn’t show up; but it’s the one Dan gave. If I remember correctly DC’s cam was mounted right below the visor.
