During the post-race press conference for the 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix, Scuderia Ferrari drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel were asked by Rebecca Clancy (Motor racing and sports reporter at The Times) about their plans for the summer break, as the next Grand Prix scheduled to take place at the end of August. Will it be a break, will it be working, will it be holiday?
Kimi Raikkonen: “I go home with family, come back for Wednesday for testing, after that, go back home again so I pretty much spend the first week flying back and forwards between Hungary and Switzerland and then after that obviously we have some time to spend with the family so that’s nice. I don’t know. In the end, it’s not very long to be honest, it’s couple of weeks at most and unfortunately it doesn’t feel like a holiday when we have things coming up so it’s not like it’s just relaxing completely. It’s nice to have a break but I think also for the teams and for all the mechanics it’s been a pretty tough last month, month and half so it’s nice for them and important for them to get some free time and relax.”
Sebastian Vettel: “Not very spectacular, I will just be home to be honest. Obviously I think we do enough of travelling in planes so I can’t be arsed to go on a plane, I’m pretty much happy to sit in one place and just enjoy. I think we’ve had an amazing summer so far, I hope it doesn’t swing yet because now’s the time for us when we have a bit of time off. I think other than day trips on the bicycle or – I don’t know – doing something boring like fishing or.. I don’t know, it will be quite boring and I’m happy with that.”
