Who would have thought that a sport as speedy and speculative as Formula One, could have a monumental impact on the procedures stabilising the success of intensive care?

Two worlds apart

People are unlikely to associate the mechanisms behind driving a high-speed race car with the procedures following intensive care, however they both strive to achieve one main goal: survival.

Formula One is known as a fast-paced, adrenaline-laden and expensive sport. For all involved, the high-speeds at which practices and races take place, often seems to leave much to chance, or so one would think.

In reality, a Formula One race has been preemptively rehearsed an infinite number of times before the camera teams call 'action'. Pit stops, engine failures and human error scenarios are repeatedly practiced before the driver takes to the stage.
