Even days after the season finale in Berlin, I look back with slightly mixed feelings. Our pace was pretty good on both days, but we still didn't reward ourselves. Of course, none of us could have expected Pascal's tire damage. So the feeling remains that we could have done better. Personally, I perceived this season finale in Berlin differently than the one a year ago. This time we had a normal race weekend with 2 races. Even though doubleheaders are always exhausting, I like them a lot. Although the days are full and you are at the track for a long time preparing the car, it is a different feeling to be in one place for 2 races. I would like to see more doubleheaders.
Carl Josef-Müller: "Juppi" between season finale and vacation.
First the 99X Electric, then the camper.
I don't have much time to think intensively about Berlin, however. We are already in the middle of preparations for the coming season. The car for season 8 is already being built. Many parts are new, Pascal will come for a seat test, so we can see if everything fits perfectly. From the seat, to the belts, to the steering wheel position. We will then do the first tests in November in Valencia. Before that, we want to revise our cargo boxes for the coming season and sessions in the simulator are also on the agenda - in the end, as always, it will be a short season break. So it's important to make good use of the time.
Before I get back into the swing of things, I'll be taking a few days off. My small family and I will be heading south in a camper. To Bavaria, to the mountains and to the lake. I'm really looking forward to finally being able to spend a little more time with them after the efforts of the season. Then I'll just let Formula E be Formula E for a few days ...
