High-frequency traders and race cars. Aren’t they similar? The “piranhas” of trading venues and racing machines of F1 are the fastest creatures in their respective worlds. Both challenge technology providers and stimulate progress. They shape technology standards of respective industries.

What teams compete in HFT? Can only large and rich companies afford to participate? Winning demands large upfront investments into technologies and people. Cars and pilots are only the tip of the iceberg. There are a lot of support personnel. Race cars do not look like normal cars. They are very specialized and expensive. They also require special driving skills.

The observations are generally true for HFT. But Russia seems an exception at least for now.
