Driving a race car requires immense concentration, but the best drivers are able to keep their minds free to think about strategy, car set-up, and to analyse their competitors. It also seems they can use that extra space in their brain to think about cricket. That’s exactly what Scott McLaughlin did during the most recent V8 Supercar race when he asked his engineers for the World Cup score. You can see the amusing video here.
McLaughlin is from New Zealand, so it’s probably best they didn’t tell him.
