So, a drink or gel is hypotonic when less concentrated than blood and hypertonic when more concentrated.

Hydration in Motorsport
Motorsport Hydration: Racing drivers, particularly those racing in tin top cars and GT's are subjected to high temperatures and humidity within the cockpit because of heat generated by the engine, gearbox and exhaust systems. Temperatures in the cockpit can exceed 50°C and you’re often exposed to these conditions for several hours. Protective clothing can make the heat problem even worse by creating a microclimate, reducing air flow to your skin, blocking ventilation and reducing heat loss. Driving at 50°C reduces your driving and mental performance and significantly increases sweat loss, core temperature and heart rate. If you don’t keep your...
