"GULF X MCLAREN LIVERY DRIVER'S SEAT" A drivers’ seat is as unique as their fingerprint – though that’s not the part of the anatomy scanned when the team are making one. The driver sits on a resin sack that contours itself around their back and backside. When it hardens, a scan of their… imprint… is taken and turned into a carbon composite form . If they’re lucky, some foam padding may be added. The seat isn’t bolted into the car but held in place securely by the seatbelts, making it much easier to extract the driver and seat together, if ever there is a suspicion of spinal injury.
