Tamara Ecclestone feels ''lucky'' to get jet-lagged.

The Formula One heiress is grateful to live a jet-set lifestyle and credits her childhood visits to Grand Prix games for her love of travelling.

She told Mondanite Magazine: ''I travel so much and sometimes it is tiring, but on the whole I feel so grateful and lucky to have seen so much of the world.''

The 29-year-old has certainly built up plenty of air miles so far in 2013, jetting into the South of France for the Cannes film festival and Monaco Grand Prix, before heading to New York for just 11 hours after a one day pit stop in London.

She continued: ''I guess growing up with my father in Formula One we always got to go to cool places so I absolutely love to travel. But sometimes when I start to think 'Damn I have to get on another plane', I stop and say 'I'm so lucky, I am fortunate and so blessed'.''

The socialite - who recently married stockbroker Jay Rutland in a lavish £7 million wedding in the French Riviera - insisted she lives a normal lifestyle outside the public eye.

She explained: ''I love hanging out with my dogs, who I miss when I travel, and doing small things like not wearing make-up and not having my hair blow dried. I love just sitting in a bar, going to the movies, baking cakes or spending time with my husband.''
