This season has been a forgetable one for Karel Abraham on the race track, but the we reckon it will be a year that the young Czech rider will remember. In a couple weeks, Karel Abraham will graduate from law school (Bachelors level), having passed his exiting exams just a few days after the conclusion of the Czech GP. Studying even during the race-weekend, Abraham says that his academic duties helped provide a distraction from the pressures of his home round.
For those who remember our sit-down interview with the Cardion AB rider, the news of Karel’s studying of the law shouldn’t be any new information. We imagine the skills he has learned in the classroom will help Abraham with next year’s contract negotiations, as there is high-degree of uncertainty surrounding Cardion AB’s plans for the 2013 MotoGP Championship. As someone who is using a law degree in a non-traditional capacity, I wish Karel the best in his future endeavors — on and off the track.
“For me, the race weekend has only just finished. I was studying every day – even during the Grand Prix itself,” said Karel Abraham. “Paradoxically, I think it helped me get rid of some of the stress associated with the race, because I had something completely different to worry about. Now I’m glad to have them both behind me, and that they both worked out OK.”
“As far as I know, Roberto Rolfo from Moto2 studied literature at uni in Turin, but although [while] most of the lads from MotoGP have got what it takes to study at that level, they’ve decided to invest all their time into their racing careers” explained Abraham. “I would like to continue at Master’s course.”
In other news, Karel’s girlfriend Nikola finished her final exams in Economics just few months before Karel.
