Very good question, i know plenty of car racers and car lovers who wouldn't be able to start an f1 experience car on the first try.

This is how it goes:

First, a huge 'Prod' like is plonked/plugged in quickly into the back of the car, where the gearbox is usually, with the driver being already in the car, he ignite the engine, and start clutching and revving the engine.

This is very hard to do, usually with normal drivers the car will just stall.

Once a Formula One car's engine is started its need to move becomes very urgent. As they are designed to operate at high speed (where there is a good supply of cooling air flowing over surfaces) modern Formula One cars have very little in the way of cooling - and the heat created by running engines while stationary puts enormous strain on the mechanical parts of the car.
