Default (sun)-glasses

I noticed while looking at pictures from competition, many drivers wear sunglasses.
I would say they are for blocking the heavy sun-light but in some conditions I saw these glasses even used when there was no sun around or even indoor
I myself, do not stand heavy sunshine and prefer to wear sunglasses outdoors, preferably polarized lenses, but do this only outdoors.

I guess maybe they could enhance sight ... but what kind of glasses would be best?

SunnyG's indoors... thats more of a pose thing, unless you've got floodlighting going on

Outdoors, yes they will obviously be a very functional thing in the sunnier days racing. Dont overdo it on the tint, or you will be squinting and looking for your car unless its bright red/yellow etc

You don't need the most expensive, just make sure they fit well, are comfortable, dont tint your vision too much and.... you are not embarrased to wear them

good question

Personally, since my eyes are light-sensitive, I wear sunglasses just about all the time and have several pair that stay in my toolbox to match up with the ever-changing conditions - and I also like that fact that they keep dirt and dust out of my eyes (so I've generally always got something on).
Dark lenses for bright sunny days
med lenses for, um, medium sunny days
lighter tint yet for blah/mixed days
yellow tint for indoor or dusk conditions when enough light is an issue

Yellow increases contrast. Try a pair on in your location shop. It's a little strange initially because it also affects colors but I like them, everything appears sharper. Same thing as shooter's glasses.

some drivers will even wear ski goggles or moto goggles to keep dust out of there eyes if it is windy outdoors.
