Australian Formula 1 drivers will be at the third Grand Prix this week. Carlos Sainz has already done it and, on social networks, he showed his routine to fight jet lag.
The knowledge arose while the man was traveling from Madrid to Dubai, having first flown on the way to Melbourne. Above all, he emphasizes three factors that can overcome this phenomenon: vigilance, staying in the light, drinking caffeine.
“I have to be careful on this first flight to explain how a good anti-jet lag strategy works when traveling to Australia,” Carlos posted in his Instagram story.
“First flight, seven hours to Dubai. It’s tough, 8am in Melbourne. It’s important not to fall asleep. Plenty of caffeine is allowed, but it’s more important to stay exposed to the light. Leave the reading lights on, watch a movie and try it out. You can entertain yourself. You can also make quick visits to you can do the bar to have interviews with your university. It’s 10:30 am in Europe so it won’t be easy,” he shared in the second story.
“An hour layover in Dubai. Probably in a zombie state after staying up all night, but it’s important to lie down energetically. Never sleep and focus on bright lighted areas, whether in sunlight or twilight. It helps. It’s going to be in Europe, after afternoon in Melbourne,” he wrote in the third story.
After “surviving” long journeys, as in the stories he later published, Sainz is now in oceanic countries to prepare for this race. The Australian GP is interesting for Ferrari, because at the beginning of April with at least a small green shoot in its results, it could increase its motivation in Maranello and thus start on the right foot of the European road.
