Check out this #F1 driver’s heel-toe downshift (In Camera)

Followers of the blog know that I’m a car-control nerd. Anything that I can share about driving technique, I’m into. I’m also into single-seater racing, so when I find a video that merges two of my favorite things, I have to post it!

Check out the foot camera of Ukyo Katayama, racing his Tyrell/Yamaha V10 around Suzuka circuit. Since F1 cars don’t have gated shifters anymore, this is probably one of the few times that you’re going to see an F1 driver heel-toe downshift.
