Describe your 2015 season by dint of six terms: 2015 was an incredibly amazing season!

My nicest moment in 2015: The final lap of the GP3 finale in Abu Dhabi where I won the title...

My worst/most disappointing moment in 2015: The qualifying session and the firs trace at Silverstone where our pace wasn't great.

My personal highlights of the year 2015 (both private and job-related): My team and I worked extremely hard for the title. Just great that we succeeded in winning it, in the end. 

That’s what annoyed me in particular (both in my private life and job-related): People who don’t respect other people and are rude..

My favourite DTM colleague: Dani Juncadella and Felix Rosenqvist. I have known them for a long time and they are funny and cool guys...

My most exciting/most thrilling 2015 weekend: The race weekend at Sotchi. There, we outperformed the entire field.  

The biggest surprise of the 2015 season, for me: The Speed of my GP3 rival Luca Ghiotto: I hadn’t expected him to be at the front of the field. 

This change / these changes I would love to see for the 2016 DTM season: Its my first season - I have no idea.

If I hadn’t become a motor racer I would have liked to be a …?: I would have liked to be an MX rider! I just love this sport.

That’s what I like particularly: Every kind of cars. Old ones, new ones, fast ones… 

That’s what I don’t like at all: Homework :-)
