Have you ever stopped to add up all of the different driver nationalities in motor racing and perhaps spotted a trend? It is an interesting study. As the world has shrunk travel-wise, so the mobility of younger people has opened up many an opportunity to them—which is by no means confined to motor racing, but which we will examine here.
So that we can cut to the chase, this overview needs to be confined to the top end of racing so, rightly or wrongly, we will stick to Formula One, IndyCar and WEC. Apologies to those who also serve, or served, in other categories, but the Editor quite rightly only allocates a certain amount of space to these ramblings and therefore we need to keep focused.
