"It seems the UK’s drivers are passing their test and still feeling extremely nervous about many of the quite routine manoeuvres and situations you face on the roads. However, it’s understandable given the average learner only has 40 to 50 hours of driving before they pass their test," said Sue Waterfield, head of marketing for Young Driver. "It’s very much why Young Driver was developed – it stands to reason that the more experience young people have behind the wheel, the better a driver they will be – and the more ‘automatic’ those basic skills become. Our pupils usually start learning to reverse park from their very first lesson."

According to Young Driver’s research, the top five things newly qualified drivers try to avoid when behind the wheel are:

  1. Parallel parking
  2. The outside lane on dual carriageways/motorways
  3. Reverse parking into an enclosed space
  4. Steep hills which might require a hill start
  5. ‘Tricky’ junctions or roundabouts

Every driver in Formula 1 needs a release valve, something to escape the pressures and demands of arguably the most physically and mentally demanding sport in the world. For Lewis Hamilton, it’s music and fashion, among other things. For Sebastian Vettel, it’s his family and the protective wall he has built around them. For Lando Norris, it’s sim racing. For George Russell, approaching the end of what has been a tough debut season with Williams, he is still figuring out what might serve him well. He concedes to being “a sporty guy” and, at this stage, he is leaning towards golf.
