Holy moly, the pedal work is INSANE. So are the gear changes in the second video. How can one even move one’s feet and arm this quickly?
I’ve seen the McRea onboard, it’s just ridiculous. Although it isn’t nearly as spectacular, I like this more recent one of Loeb. Especially once he drives into the fog – complete trust in his co-driver.
When I watch F1 there’s always the feeling that I could do it. Not so with rallying though. It just seems so much more complex – different surfaces, not really knowing the circuit and having to rely on the co-driver, the much more difficult cornering etc.
