In this video, we see MX-5 Cup driver Tom Martin III after a restart at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. While he is clearly faster than the car ahead, it takes him several laps to make the pass.

One of the trickiest challenges facing a driver is knowing when to work on making the car's setup better, or when to work on one's own driving. Maybe even more challenging is knowing where to start tuning your car, what to do, and understanding the Why behind any of these changes.
