There's a summarised history of race suit development on the F1 GP website, that charts the transition from the cotton pants and shirt of the gentleman racer to the two-layer nomex with undergarments worn by today's speed demons. The article also names one Paul Trafford, a UK surgeon who has been involved in motorsports medicine for about 25 years and has worked alongside the likes of Sid Watkins and Terry Trammel. Traf has taken on the role of Medical Director of the FIA Institute and had an article written about his efforts in a recent edition of UK newspaper, The Times.
