They definitely are athletes. The athletic prowess required goes up exponentially as you move up the ladder. F1 requires crazy fitness. Love all your shots, especially the first and third.

Put on long underwear, a full suit, gloves, socks, & a full hood over that + a helmet. Then wear a car that's 130 degrees on a 90 degree day.
Now make 1,000 decisions a minute where any wrong one might kill you for 2 hours or more.

Are drivers athletes? Debatable I guess.

No debate in my mind! They are! You go try and drive a hot car in a circle at 200 MPH for 2 hours. If you are not in shape, it will kick the living **** out of your ass for days! Ever see an over weight race car driver at the top levels? I would say they are and I loved those shots!

Sometimes these little guys can be a hoot to watch, but don't let it be said they don't get into the zone too! :)

You have to be focused surrounded by the opposition...

You'd best be about 200' out for this shot - I see you're slightly left of the field, but I've yanked more than a few that direction... lol! I never got much over 180' but the kids these day can really toss those things... Very nice shot, and it's good to see the weight events get a little exposure!
