There, they underwent a series of tests usually carried out on Olympic athletes. The Institute’s doctors made all its experience available in evaluating their sports functionality including laboratory tests, cardiology, rehabilitative-traumatology, ophthalmology, dental, otorhinolaryngology, dietary, pneumological and psychological tests. The evaluation ended with a certification of suitability for the role of a racing driver.
