Do Formula 1 or Nascar drivers listen to music while racing?

Formula 1 and NASCAR drivers generally do not listen to music while racing due to the intense concentration and focus needed to drive a race car at high speeds. Some drivers may use music as a distraction from the noise and pressure of the race and to help them stay in control, but it is not common practice. Listening to music could also be a safety hazard, as drivers need to be able to hear other racers, as well as their team over their radio. Drivers also need to be aware of their surroundings on the track and be able to concentrate on their driving. In conclusion, while some drivers may listen to music while racing, it is not common practice due to the focus and concentration needed to drive safely.
