I’m British and I’m finding I’m struggling to get up for this. 3 weekends in a row is one hell of a slog.
When you you work Mon-Fri and you use your weekends for family stuff. Having 3 weekends of FP1/FP2/FP3/Pre Qualy/Qualy/Post Qualy/Pre race/Race/Post race is hard to justify and keep motivated for. I have no idea how the teams/drivers themselves are managing it.
I think the salary is a great motivation. Many people have to work several weekends in a row with a miserable salary. This is really though. What teams and drivers do is hard work, yes, but they are working for the best teams in the world and with a good salary. I can understand that it can be hard at times but I guess they are more than happy with their job.
