Describe your 2015 season by dint of six terms: Challenging, Exciting, Thrilling, Rewarding, Commitment, Adrenalin

My nicest DTM moment in 2015: Definitely my first DTM win at Oschersleben

My worst/most disappointing DTM moment in 2015: My single most disappointing moment was probably Sunday’s qualifying at Zandvoort where I was completely blocked. It was a shame because it was a strong weekend for BMW and I wasn't able to capitalize. The day before I had just scored my first points of the year so I wanted to back that up with another strong showing.

My personal highlights of the year 2015 (both private and job-related): My personal highlight of the year was definitely my win at Oschersleben. That stood above all the rest. It was then winning the Manufacturers’ championship in the last race at Hockenheim. That was cool!

That’s what annoyed me in particular (both in my private life and job-related): What annoys me most is how fast all the DTM drivers are. 

My favourite DTM colleague: Has to be my Brazilian teammate Augusto Farfus, what a great guy.

My most exciting/most thrilling 2015 DTM weekend: Apart from Oschersleben for obvious reasons I would say my first ever DTM weekend at Hockenheim. Everything was new and I was shocked to see how competitive DTM is.

The biggest surprise of the 2015 season, for me: How close the competition is in the DTM, we are searching for nano seconds. 

This change / these changes I would love to see for the 2016 DTM season: I'm slightly guttered I missed out on the shootout format of qualifying. That looked cool, and I bet it was thrilling for the drivers.

If I hadn’t become a motor racer I would have liked to be a …?: A professional racing cyclist. I love cycling! It's all about dedication and commitment.

That’s what I like particularly: Ice cream, I struggle to resist the temptation of a good gelato.

That’s what I don’t like at all: Snakes! I hate snakes.

The motto of my life: Success will come automatically if you do what you love and give everything to be the best in what you do

My goal for the 2016 DTM season: Win more races.

My favourite racetrack: Macau, I raced there in Formula 3 and the track is so rewarding. You get so close to the walls and generally the more risks you take the quicker you go. But it is all controlled aggression and that is what I love about it!

My favourite song: Don't have one
