That Official Team Minion with the clipboard grilling Valentino Rossi, Ben Spies or Ari Henning between practice sessions isn't taking lunch orders. He's finding out what's working where to help Vale, Elbowz or that other guy go faster next time. Information is power, or in this case, time. And time, as they say, is money. You may not have a team, never mind a team minion, at the track. But you should have a clipboard with some sort of standard data sheet clipped to it. Those who do not remember past set-up sins are doomed to repeat them. A binder full of data sheets can be as valuable as fuel and fresh tires, especially when you're learning a new track or some new brand of tire.
