That seems more like speculation. F1 drivers are fitter than Football or Tennis players for example. The fitness required to drive an F1 car during a race is much higher than it is playing a Tennis or Football match.

Rubbish. The fitness required to drive an F1 car is just DIFFERENT than what is needed for tennis, which is different from what is needed for football.

Different strengths, different muscle shapes, different cardio demands, different endurance demands, etc.


This.

Here is a little insight in what a F1 pilot ( LH ) does for his fittnes. Of course it's only a part of it

Heikki Kovalainen trains really really hard. Anyone who follows his Twitter knows this. He said that he even turned teetotaler in 2010 I think, because he thought it could help him push himself to be even stronger mentally and physically.

Also as mentioned, I would imagine Webber and Button to be extremely fit aswell.
