The FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem is showing great interest in all aspects of F1 besides the prestige and the cash.
Here he is seen actually speaking to a driver and learning about their safety equipment.

2. Slapping the two sides of the helmet simultaneously checking for ear rings (if the driver react to that with discomford probably he wearing).
3. Punching the chest of the driver to check for necklace and crosses.
