What It Really Looks Like To Drive a Formula One Car

In this video you join Lucas di Grassi driving a lap of Spa in the wet using for the first time a new eye level camera.

This camera is mounted either just above or to one side of the drivers eye, on this lap Lucas drove with one eye covered by the camera to let you see exactly what the driver would see.

    That’s because the camera is closer to the mirrors than his eyes are, thus with that angle making them look lower to the ground on the mirrors rather than the horizon.

    Usually, people aren’t allowed to drive or ride or mount if one of their eyes cant see, as the instinctive perception of depth relies on the diference of points of view from one eye to the other (as they are spaced out).As such, I very much doubt it this f1 driver would subject himself to driving with one eye closed and that the higher ups would permit it.Plus, the angle of his focal point with the steering wheel seems like you are in a normal car, which makes me say this is a regular camera.

    In this video, everyone thinks “eye level” is a lie, what people think is higher than eye level is actually the fact a camera is about 10cm in front of the eye, so the angles on mirrors and wheels is different. It’s eye level but it’s not in his eye socket. Seriously, these armchair f1 pro’s can’t even figure geometry out.

    Just to let you all know he actually drove this lap with vision in just ONE eye. The camera was placed over one of his eyes, which one I can’t remember correctly but they were discussing this lap during the buildup to the British GP. Bare in mind it’s only an installation lap as well but still, to drive an F1 car seeing out of one eye is more than impressive.

    IMO it’s not eye level. If you see how low the drivers actually sit inside the cockpit, it’s lower than this.

    In my opinion, this might be the best in-car video I’ve ever seen. The technology is amazing. When you compare it to Vettel’s camera duct taped to the outside of his helmet at eye level, this is about 100 times better. You really, really get to see what the driver sees, and what he’s looking at.The speed Luca is carrying on a wet Spa track is actually somewhat frightening. Spa is treacherous enough when dry, but damn.

    They never used the 2010 Toyota – it was the 2009 one they used. One of the big reasons they changed was because the 2009 car didn’t have a big enough fuel tank to simulate the no-refuelling rules brought in for 2010. The current car is actually a 2010 Renault.

    judging from pictures of F1 drivers in 2012 holding their hands this doesn’t look too eye level, but maybe it’s just the seat height of the Toyota TF110 car from 2010 that they never raced or maybe Lucas’ eye level is really just that high up for whatever reason, either way, it’s nice to have some more footage of what a F1 driver sees than an onboard camera
