Training

Beyond being a racing driver Tatiana is a consummate athlete and when not at the track, her routine is based around her fitness training. Her daily schedule includes between two and four hours of physical activity aimed at allowing her to cope with the demands of driving a high-performance single-seater. Each year, as Tatiana moves up the racing ladder, driving becomes increasingly demanding on her body, requiring a continuous improvement of her condition in several areas, which usually requires more hours of work than what a male driver requires. Tatiana is a huge sports fan and enjoys running, cycling and swimming as part of her weekly exercise routine.
