I am convinced that if I were to go to the starting line with an internist and were to perform a gastroscopy to all of the drivers, the majority would have something in their stomach and that is not good, as digestion goes a ‘blood confiscation’ to the rest of the body, leaving less of it for the brain and the other organs involved while working harder during the race.
It depends a lot on the times they need to be on the racetrack. As a general rule, one should have breakfast, a mid-morning snack, lunch, an afternoon snack and dinner. What is important, as I have said, it is simple to eat plain foods. One needs to learn two or three basic rules, get an idea of the intake of calories that each food provides and the digestion times, then the rest follows accordingly, by simple common sense and listening to the signals given by one’s own body.
