Ahead of the summer break, we asked some of the team how they’ll be recharging their batteries over the next couple of weeks…
Mark Webber: “I’m going to the Olympics for a few days, here and there. As well as that, I’ll do a bit of mountain
biking, hanging out with the dogs and going to friends’ barbecues.”
Christian Horner: “I’m hoping to see a little bit of the Olympics. I’ve very kindly been invited to go and see the closing ceremony, which will be exciting. I’m going to have a bit of time at home in the first week and then in the second week hopefully we’ll manage to go away somewhere. We haven’t decided yet but I’m sure Beverley will make that decision for me.”
Adrian Newey: “I took a break earlier this year and took the kids to America. We flew into San Francisco, hired a Mustang convertible and drove out to Yosemite National Park and through Death Valley, to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. In August I’ll go to the Maldives.”
Sebastian Vettel: “Initially, I’ll try to find some peace and quiet, relax and get little bit in the sun by the sea and then I’ll get back to some training and preparation for Spa, I guess.”
Rob Marshall – Chief Designer : “I am going to go to Turkey with my family for a week, for some beach time, sailing and a bit of tennis. We come back for the middle weekend and we’re going to the Olympics to see some athletics and we should see the 4x100m final. After that we’re going to the south coast of England for some more sailing and then I’m going to Lords in London to watch the cricket test match for two days.
