17.04.2013: MARK WEBBER What’s the benefit of back to back races?

MARK WEBBER




What’s the benefit of back to back races?


We like racing and it’s another opportunity to go racing again soon, so that’s a positive. We’re already roughly in the same part of the world, so back to back races can be an efficient way for us to go racing; as an industry it’s good organisation.



How do you adapt your preparation and training with back to back races?

It’s important to make sure you get ready for the next race off the back of the first one, so travelling as soon as you can is important.


If you have a very big result at the first race then you’re not going to stay in the night club too long that evening celebrating, as you need to make sure you’re ready for the next event. It’s a short turnaround; you want to make sure that the training is sensible and you’re keeping yourself healthy.



Do you prefer to go from one race to the next or to have a longer gap between races?


It’s good to have a back to back, then a bit of a break, and then back to back again. When we’re off we have a bit of a chance to regroup.



What’s your favourite corner of the Bahrain Circuit?


I quite like the last sector, Turns 12 and 13, up over the crest, that’s a nice part of the lap. It’s a little bit quicker, because the rest of the track is quite slow and not super exhilarating. There are some quick-ish corners, which are quite rewarding.

What’s the benefit of back to back races?


The positive is that on the Friday of the second race, you get into the rhythm quickly. You save time by travelling direct from one race to the next and can adapt to the time zone a bit quicker, as you don‘t have to travel so far. The only thing is that there‘s not much time for physical and mental recovery after the first race.



How do you adapt your preparation and training with back to back races?

I make the most of the Monday after the first race, in terms of relaxing and recovery. On the Tuesday, I do some easy training in the gym or some badminton, to keep the body and mind in correct mode.



Do you prefer to go from one race to the next or to have a longer gap between races?


It‘s important that the race calender is well balanced so that drivers can get proper rest periods in order to be able to push 100 percent at each event. This means that sometimes it is good to have back to back races and then some longer breaks.



Tell us something of the circuit in Bahrain


The corners can fool you and lead to errors because the track is very wide and quite often the apex of the corner is not obvious. For example the apex of Turn 14 is hidden as you approach it.
