Dedication to Detail
One of the things that strikes you about Formula One is that nothing is too much trouble. If there's an opportunity to do things better, you do it.
As soon as it stops raining, the trucks are wiped down so that they don't have watermarks that will last throughout the weekend. There's an immense amount of pride taken in how the garages and trucks look, scruffiness is not tolerated. At the Nürburgring, teams weren't allowed to paint the floor of the garage and everything looked drab as a result. Attention to detail counts.
