Has always seemed aliens are faster because they don't slow down as much, or at all, while my brain simply will not be convinced its possible to complete some turn without slowing to a much-less-than-alien speed, all still hanging on trying to not lift.
They flick the wheel once and the car goes exactly where it needs to be at exit without skipping a beat. With me that's always slow down to half a guess and the same question every lap only gets the same answer on average.

Going fast is no secret.

A quote from Hap Sharp, taken from the book 'Chapparal' by Richard Falconer.  I like the Jim Hall quote also. :up:

Pic from Haynes Manual of Lotus 49 r12 foot well showing offset steering column, (for more room to work), and pedal arrangement.
