A question of relativity?

If we accept the principle that time slows down the faster you go, does this mean, given Formula one drivers have an average higher speed than most people, that they age slower than normal people?
Given the physical and mental stress involved, albeit only every couple of weeks, I would think that they would age more quickly - but they maybe have more fun!

There is no scientific basis for my assumption though.
I think, theoretically, yes but we are talking fractions of a second. You age more slowly, for example, on an international air flight (if I remember the Royal Institute Christmas Lectures correctly)
