Quotes from a aptness stay in Viareggio.


Marco Wittmann:

“It is fun to go on such an heated aptness week with the
others. We had a full programme, with endurance, energy and mental
training, that unequivocally put us by a paces. It was very
engaging to learn new training methods, such as boxercise. You can
simply incorporate that into your aptness slight during home. The
sessions with mental and greeting training are always good. As a
racing driver, we not usually need stamina and power, though mental skills
are also essential. That can make all a disproportion out on a track.”


Timo Glock:

“We all hang to a extensive aptness slight during home, but
it is always a bit special to spend a few days training together. It
is engaging to learn new things, that we can afterwards try out during home
and confederate in your bland training. Above all, however, it was
fun to sight so tough as a organisation – either weight training, outdoor
activities or mental tests, that unequivocally put your reactions and
thoroughness to a test.”


Bruno Spengler:

“A training week together with a organisation is always critical in
credentials for a new season. Dr. Ceccarelli and his organisation always
come adult with something new. This year it was mental and reaction
exercises, in that we went conduct to conduct in teams of four. That was
good fun – as was a boxercise. we have never finished anything like that
before. We were flat-out for an hour – and a muscles were still
painful a following day. All in all, it was good to spend a week
together before a start of a season. We don’t mostly have the
event to sight as a group, as we are all on a highway a lot.
Because of this, it was unequivocally critical for us as a team.”


Augusto Farfus:

“The aptness stay was excellent, as it gave us a opportunity
to sight as a team. All 8 of us were together, and though the
vigour we are underneath on a foe weekend. Training is some-more fun
together, and we dined and loose together in a evenings. It goes
though observant that there was always a rival edge: either in
a mental test, personification list tennis, or any of a other activities,
we always wish to be improved than a others. But that is a good
opinion to have. As veteran racing drivers, we are all unequivocally fit,
both physically and mentally. However, there is always room for
improvement, and that is what this aptness week was about. We all head
home even improved prepared.”


Tom Blomqvist:

“Apart from on foe weekends, a 8 drivers do not often
have a event to spend time together as a team. For this
reason, a stay like this is not usually ideal for honing your fitness,
though also for carrying fun together and contrast yourself. Personally, the
exercises we enjoyed many were those that pushed we to your boundary and
unequivocally hurt. we lerned tough over a winter, though was still means to
urge my aptness here.”


Maxime Martin:

“I consider it is critical to frequently demeanour during what we do well,
what we are doing wrong, and what we can urge by training.
That creates a stay like this ideal for us drivers. The several mental
exercises were utterly interesting. They helped us to file our
concentration, and so to be even improved out on a racetrack. The
boxercise was also good fun. That was unequivocally opposite to a everyday
training routine. However, it is usually as critical for us racing
drivers to spend time together divided from a racetrack. It brings us
closer together as a family.”


António Félix da Costa:

“As a veteran racing driver, it is critical to be during a tip of
a aptness in all situations. You have to be means to sojourn fully
focussed, even when your physique is tired. We worked tough on that during the
aptness camp. We total several exercises: for example, we got our
pulses racing, while during a same time carrying to combine hard. The
Formula Medicine organisation came adult with some unequivocally good sessions and
exercises, that helped us to turn improved and some-more finish drivers.
It was utterly simply a good week in Italy, and we had a lot of fun together.”


Martin Tomczyk:

“The aptness week was good fun again. As good as a actual
sport, we consider that is one of a categorical priorities. It is critical for
us drivers to spend time together divided from a foe weekends. Being
together as a team, training together and pulling any other really
does move we closer. That was once again a box in Viareggio,
where a atmosphere was fantastic. It goes though observant that there
is always a grade of foe in a exercises. After all, we are
all racing drivers, and everybody wants to infer themselves in front of
a others. However, a fun we had together here is even more
important. we favourite a fact that a training programme was once again
unequivocally varied. You wish to ideal both your aptness on a one hand,
and your mental strength on a other. The Formula Medicine programme
achieved that unequivocally good this week.”
