Being a jockey on a race-horse is a bit like riding a motorbike at 40mph ,which could go out of control at any moment - one wrong move and you could be flying through the air , with only a helmet to protect you - and of course if you fal off , there's the rest of the pack ready to run you over
When the other folders just won't do!

I suppose the difference really works to that motorbike analogy, if you could remote conrtrol the bike it would go at 40mph from start to finish, but with you on it you have the option of faster, slower and tactical racing, the horse isn't going to decide itself when to make the final sprint or to tire the other horses out early to try and get a jump.

Yes, the performance of the Horses in a given race is usually a lot closer together and the driver doesn't have to be aware that the car could get bored and wonder off to do something else at any minute.necronom wrote:There is a big difference, and you know it.Dudley wrote:In the same way Lewis just sits in a car while it wins events yes.necronom wrote:I've just had to look her up to see who she is.

The driver can also largely drive flat out every lap, brake in the same place turn in the same place whereas a horse is a very unpredictable beast that has to be paced and reacted to far more.
