The innate abilities required are very similar ... mechanical sympathy, hand to eye co-ordination, spacial awareness, fast reflexes and the ability to find the quickest line through a corner .. all apply to both disciplines.
It's like comparing heart surgeons to brain surgeons. They are both good, but a brain surgeon wouldn't make quite as good a job of a triple bypass.
