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 once I was energetic in Formula 1. I all the time have till this present day. In Formula 1 I had an American cellular dwelling 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 own home with you. But there are additionally quite simple causes: you all the time have a bathroom 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 am going out typically. But it is determined by the kind of journey. If I’m on the highway for per week, I take an even 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 may’t do with out whereas camping?
The most necessary 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 cellular dwelling, 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 remember: 4 chairs and a desk.

In which areas do you prefer to journey by automobile?
I exploit the automobile primarily for enterprise. I used to be not too long ago in Wörthersee and thought it was fantastic, standing in the meadow close to the resort. Otherwise, I spend most of my time at racetracks. Once a yr I am going on a motorbike journey with my Harley and go over all the passes. I prefer to sleep at the prime 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 kind?
I do not normally go camping. I not too long ago 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 feel it is a disgrace and takes the enjoyable out of camping. That’s why I favor to remain someplace alone. Living in the center of nature is the most stunning factor. If there is a very good parking place someplace and you’ll keep there in a single day. Personally, I like to face by the lake and luxuriate in the view. That’s what camping is all about.

Are you typically acknowledged whenever you’re out and about? And then how you can cope with it?
Yes, good. I am unable to escape the camp very properly. But it is not dangerous as a result of folks respect privateness and are very well mannered.
