In the last half year I was spending less time on the simulator than ever before. Ok, not true, but at least for the last 7 years. Sure, someone could assume that I got worse because of the lack of training when in fact it’s the complete opposite. Instead of getting worse as expected, I got better. And I have not improved just a bit, I took a huge step forward. But why is this the case? How?
The answer? I guess there are two important points to consider. The first one is that I have developed a way better understanding for car physics and how everything works together. And the other point is that I use the time on the simulator more intense. When you drive two hours every single day, of course a routine will find its way into your life. With me not driving much during the work week, I use the time on the weekends way more effective and, this is important to notice, I have more time to reflect on my doing. I take some time and think about the last race. What did I do wrong? Where can I break later? And during this process I learn, I improve!
Of course I need to get back on the simulator a little bit more, but I am not planning on getting sick quite soon again. Therefore this should be possible.
See you next time!
