Driver Pierre Gasly was mightily impressed by the signing of Zidane and, now, the World Cup winner has revealed how much F1 has helped him in his coaching career to date - pointing out how impressed he is with the speed and professionalism of pit stops.
"I think that the difference in top-level sport certainly comes down to the small details," Zidane said in an interview with Sky Sports.
"We have the proof here. During my talks with the players I've often used Formula 1.
"When you change tyres in three seconds, that's how you do it, it blows me away. So when you want to get a message across, you might say 'Take Formula 1 guys, that's the top level'. It's the best, there's no better."
