Being Force-sensitive definitely helps if you are a pilot or Podracer and some of the best like Anakin and Luke definitely were. Furthermore, Qui-Gon Jinn, albeit probably exaggerating a bit, admitted:
Qui-Gon Jinn: You must have Jedi reflexes if you race pods.
This can be interpreted as: If you survive long enough in Podracing, you must either have excellent reflexes equivalent to those of a Jedi or you must be Force-sensitive.
Now, in the Phantom Menace we see another top Podracer and very skilled pilot, namely Sebulba, so my question is: Is Sebulba Force-sensitive?
