Lando Norris's mental health stand should change F1

Bravery takes many different forms, from a frontline soldier under fire, to firefighters tackling a burning building, to an F1 driver hurtling at 200mph around a rain-lashed circuit and with zero visibility.

Those are clearly recognisable and understandable forms of bravery, but then there is a different kind of courage, no less meaningful in many respects, certainly not to the person concerned. They may not be putting themselves in danger in a physical sense, but mentally and emotionally the inner demons they have to overcome are just as daunting.
