From January to June more than 120 drivers of 33 different nationalities have been assisted by the staff guided by Doctor Riccardo Ceccarelli.
Formula Medicine presents it numbers. With the season at the halfway point, it’s time to take stock. From January to June of this year, 122 drivers were assisted by the staff led by Dr. Riccardo Ceccarelli. A number that becomes even more relevant if we consider the multinationality it represents, with drivers coming from no less than 33 different countries, 74 percent from abroad.
An extraordinary effort, that of the Viareggio facility, which in the first half of 2019 deployed 22 doctors, 9 physiotherapists, 6 nurses, 5 trainers and a psychologist, hosting 99 drivers of different specialties and categories at its headquarters, and following another 23 exclusively on track. The major commitment is in closed wheels categories (Sport, GT and Turismo), from which 50 drivers came to Formula Medicine.
Room also for the young and very young, with a total of 40 karting drivers, while 26 came from the single-seater categories; from IndyCar to Formula E, passing through the “minor categories” such as the FIA Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships. There are 55 under-20s. Of these 41 are less than 18 years old. But there are also five over-50s. From the youngest (9 years) we pass to the over-70s, one of whom recently competed in the Peking-Paris.
Among the specialties followed there are also rallies and hill-climbs. Four wheels but also two wheels, seeing the involvement of many motorcyclists.
But Formula Medicine is not only motorsport. Thanks to the results obtained with Mental Economy Training, an increasing number of athletes today rely on the Viareggio facility. So much so that there are more than ten other sporting disciplines involved in 2019, including mountain biking, swimming, skating, skiing, tennis, shooting and sailing.
