Yes in horse racing, it's down to who can hit their horse hardest with the crop?
some you can hit , some you can't

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
Having never ridden a motorbike before, it sounds like what would happen anyway!!!

In the same way Lewis just sits in a car while it wins events yes.
There is a big difference, and you know it.

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.

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.

i think that generally horses are pretty evil animals
Although they may look majestic in motion , most are looking to bite / kick / throw you every chance they can get
By nature they're wild pack animals
