Ralf Schumacher: This is what the Formula 1 driver thinks about camping

AUTO BILD CAMPER: How lengthy have you ever been touring by automobile?
Ralf Schumacher: I purchased my first parking zone in 2001 after I was energetic in Formula 1. I all the time have till this present day. In Formula 1 I had an American cell house with skids, however I solely used it on the monitor.

What are the benefits of staying in a single day in a circuit with a automobile?
The largest benefit is that you simply all the time have part of your property with you. But there are additionally quite simple causes: you all the time have a rest room and a bathe. You can bathe and alter garments occasionally. Most importantly, there is a retreat.

Do you additionally prefer to journey by automobile?
I’m going out typically. But it will depend on the sort of journey. If I’m on the street for every week, I take a much bigger automobile with me. If I’m solely away for the weekend, I’ll take the van. (Ralph Schumacher personally drives it!)

What are three issues you’ll be able to’t do with out whereas camping?
The most essential factor for me is the fridge. It ought to all the time be full. I actually like cheese, particularly mountain cheese. It ought to be there. Since I prefer to cook dinner in my cell house, there ought to be sufficient meals and drinks. For me, a bottle or two of fine wine should not go amiss when camping. When I’m with my buddies, we additionally like to barbecue. Therefore, there is normally a small grill on board. And do not forget: 4 chairs and a desk.

In which areas do you prefer to journey by automobile?
I take advantage of the automobile primarily for enterprise. I used to be lately in Wörthersee and thought it was great, standing in the meadow close to the lodge. Otherwise, I spend most of my time at racetracks. Once a 12 months I’m going on a bike journey with my Harley and go over all the passes. I prefer to sleep at the high of the passes. On these journeys I typically take the van because it is self-sufficient and the tight serpentines are higher to drive. (These camps are our favorites from CMT!)

Are you the camping, parking or wild camping sort?
I do not normally go camping. I lately went to the one close to Spielberg and it was actually cool. But this is not a basic camp. The “sharing backyard mentality” in Germany bothers me typically. I believe it is a disgrace and takes the enjoyable out of camping. That’s why I desire to remain someplace alone. Living in the center of nature is the most lovely factor. If there is an excellent parking place someplace and you may keep there in a single day. Personally, I like to face by the lake and revel in the view. That’s what camping is all about.

Are you typically acknowledged if you’re out and about? And then how you can take care of it?
Yes, good. I can not escape the camp very effectively. But it is not unhealthy as a result of folks respect privateness and are very well mannered.
