Default Do Formula 1 racers race in streets races?

With their skill and wealth, how come we don't see any f1 racers doing street races or drag races?

first, who is your avy?

Second, why would they risk their career by breaking the law? I am sure F1 would not be very happy with a driver caught doing such

Maybe because they're not stupid. Why street race, potentially get busted by cops or killed, and ruin the wealth that came with the skills?

Street racing is for idiots. Save it for the track, and if you can't afford going to a track, you shouldn't be risking prison time by racing.

Guys like Hamilton and Vettel are making 20+ million a year... and street races aint shit compared to F1.


That said, F1 schedule includes races that take part on actual streets, like the Circuit of Monaco and Circuit of Valencia.

Someone just watched Fast and Furious...

This is like asking why Nadal or Federer don't play racketball at the local YMCA.

Hamilton just signed a deal with Mercedes for 3 years, $100 million. I'm sure that $100 million is including incentives based on performance though. Vettel signed an extension with Red Bull a couple years ago that was rumored to be in the 3 years, $80 million range.

Default Re: Do Formula 1 racers race in streets races?

Comparing drag races to driving around Monaco. I know OP is trolling, but I'll still bite seeing as I'm an F1 junkie.

Granted, there were more street circuits in the past than there are now. There was a pretty demanding one in Phoenix, for example. Think it was last used in 1991. Also ones in Adelaide, Detroit, Long Beach, and some more.

And as mentioned before, they still do 78 laps of Monaco, one of the toughest street circuits, and has been for years. And Valencia too, though can't see them staying there for much longer, track is apparently very run down.

But yeah, stick to your Fast and Furious shit.

Too busy living the life, and I don't blame them. People think street racing is cool based off films like Fast and Furious. Dunno why, but I'm not a fan of nice looking cars being disfigured with **** ugly spoilers and awful paintjobs. Hardly the height of technology either. I'll stick to the pinnacle of Motorsport thanks.

Why don't NBA players play in street ball tournaments? They could own competition and earn some big $...
