People who's priority is to feel good about themselves choose much less competitive careers. Careers where they are not measured by their market value.
Motorcycle racing is barely a career at all, and far from a highly paid one.
It's a hobby. You get to the top of it only if you'd rather race than make money.
As I suspect you know perfectly well.
