We all know the feeling, your car’s handling like a piece of s***, and you have no idea why. That’s where the race engineer comes in.

In the fifth installment of Safe Is Fast's Race Ready series they are focusing on how a driver and engineer can best work together to find that sweet spot.

And they’ve put together a group of top IndyCar and sports car drivers to explain just how drivers and engineers develop a relationship that delivers results.

Legendary driver, engineer and designer Jim Hall also features in the trilogy of videos with his guide on race car systems and dynamics, as does 12-time SCCA National Champion and famed Corvette engineer John Hienricy.
