Please tell us three attributes describing you as racing driver ...
Committed, a lot of fighting spirit, motivated.
Who was your teenage idol and why?
My dad. Although he wasn’t a racing driver. He only did a bit of motocross racing. But your parents of course are your role models. And in the case of a boy, this usually applies first of all to the father.
Is there a sport you have no talent in at all and why?
I’m skilled in a lot of sports. I particularly like sports on a professional level. I haven’t tried it, to date, but I think curling could be the one. I’m not interested in trying it and so I wouldn’t be motivated.
What would be your profession if you hadn’t become a racing driver?
I originally wanted to be a professional football player. Sometime I had to make the decision between playing football and karting but doing so was difficult. I was 15 years old when I stopped playing football but I also had a high level as football player. I was more Ronaldo than Messi. .
If you had the chance of meeting a celebrity: whom would you choose and why?
There are several people I’d like to meet. But as we are living in the motor-racing world I’d opt for Ayrton Senna. If meeting him was really would be possible I’d love to talk with him to find out what a character he was. That would be great.
What would you do without your smart phone?
A lot of things. Without my smart phone I could live a normal life.
