McLaren CEO’s secrets for success

McLaren’s Martin Whitmarsh explains criteria he believed separated the elite from the simply good or average:

Firstly, you obviously need the natural skill

Secondly, you require a considerable degree of natural toughness.

Thirdly, some technical empathy is a major benefit because it helps a driver to integrate better with his engineers, which in turn speeds up the car development progress.

Finally there is fitness, determination and application. Even over their cornflakes the top guys are always thinking what they can do to improve their own performances. It is almost as if they have some special genetic capability. Lesser drivers don’t do this, possibly because they aren’t smart enough, aren’t committed enough or simply don’t care.
