However, achieving this status is no easy feat – it’s a journey of numerous steps and we’re here to guide you along the way. You are wondering if you’ve got what it takes and on what you should work to fulfill these dreams? The F4 TRAINING CAMP has all the answers you’re looking for – but first, let’s explore the fundamental requirements together.



No, racing is not just about turning a wheel and pressing pedals. As a racing driver, the car becomes an extension of your body, and the track your closest ally. Mastery of both is crucial for peak performance.

Professional drivers use advanced simulators not only to improve their overall skills but also to intimately understand every curve, braking point, and key element of the track. Moreover, once at the circuit, the trackwalk is essential to absorb every detail and assess track conditions. Being able to analyze the layout is definitely an important asset of the job.

Beyond the track, they know their vehicle by heart. From technical regulations to aerodynamic concepts, weight distribution to engine dynamics, the car has no secret for its driver.



Yes, racing is an actual sport – and a pretty intense one at that. Fitness and physical strength are essential assets for performing. While braking or taking a high-speed turn, drivers undergo forces upwards to 5Gs, meaning they feel a force on their bodies equal to five times their body weight, pushing them towards the side of the car. To counteract this, they diligently train their necks and core muscles. Fitness training does not only focus on strength but endurance as well, crucial for the long and intense races. Their body must be prepared to perform under extreme conditions, the cabin temperature sometimes exceeding 50°C. All of this while maintaining their body fat percentages very low – 8% for Formula 1 drivers – because every kilogram counts when you’re chasing the optimal performance.



The mental aspect is just as critical as the physical one. Professional racing demands immense mental strength for both success and longevity in the sport. Focus and concentration are essential as split-second decisions can mean the difference between victory and defeat. Filtering out non-essential information hence becomes a valuable skill. Professional racing drivers also have to manage intense emotions, going from excitement and exhilaration to frustration and disappointment. As they face numerous setbacks, both on and off the track, they must stay composed and cultivate resilience.



While Formula One may seem like an individual sport, the performance actually lies in the team’s effort. Being a professional racing driver goes far beyond the asphalt. Despite being alone in the cockpit, they have a dedicated team supporting them: coaches, mechanics, engineers, and strategists. A driver’s good performance is the whole team’s victory – teamwork is essential.



Pro-drivers must master the art of interviews, communicate effectively with the media, investors, sponsors, and fans. The realms of marketing and communication are significant aspects of the job and crucial factors for their career trajectory.

With 60 years of experience and a team of dedicated mechanics, engineers, physical, mental and driving coaches, all experts in their respective fields, we are here to guide you and make sure you get every asset necessary to succeed in your racing career.
