To many, driving is an art form, but it's actually more science than art. That doesn't always sit well with purists, but creating the fastest car and completing a race in the fastest time will always be a matter of mathematics rather than beauty.

Guesstimations are largely left in the past these days as simulation tools become more and more advanced. Leaving things to chance when there is the opportunity to trial hundreds of different set-up solutions is the motorsport equivalent of declaring that Britain has "had enough of experts" while trying to win an argument about Brexit.
