International top-level drivers will be staging entertaining duels in 18 races on a total of nine weekends. We want to introduce the contenders from BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz in detail and have asked each one of them 24 questions. In no particular order, the answers will be published over the next weeks as a part of our series ’24 drivers – 24 questions’. Today, it’s the turn of the only South American on the DTM grid.

Describe your 2015 season by dint of six terms: Challenging. Fight. Believe. Together. Team. United.

My nicest DTM moment in 2015: When NMW secured the all the top-seven positions at Zandvoort. 

My worst/most disappointing DTM moment in 2015: The lack of pace during wet sessions and not being able to fight for the title.

My personal highlights of the year 2015 (both private and job-related): The pole-position for the Nürburgring 24-Hour Race definitely was something very special. 

That’s what annoyed me in particular (both in my private life and job-related): People without an own personality who fake instead of being fair and honest.  

My favourite DTM colleague: Maxime Martin

My most exciting/most thrilling 2015 DTM weekend: Oschersleben. I just can’t forget that Tom Blomqvist and I gave our squad, BMW Team RBM, a one-two, there. That was great!  

The biggest surprise of the 2015 season, for me: To realise that the fans loved the new format of the race weekends.

This change / these changes I would love to see for the 2016 DTM season: Maybe the return of a softer tyre – and more international races also would be nice. We provide a great show and as I see it, the rest of the world also should be offered the chance of enjoying it live on site.
