IN ALL SERIOUSNESS:

Where are you from?

Düsseldorf, Germany 

Describe yourself in 3 words:

Ponctual - Loyal - Honest 

What's the best part about your sport?

Travelling the world and getting paid for it!

How did you start racing?

My father used to race and I followed him around. Ironically enough, the first time he put me in a go-kart, I didn't like it. It took me going back a second time to finally get the hang of it and really enjoy myself. And now, I wouldn't be able to live without racing! 

Favourite track(s)?

Bathurst Mount Panorama and Sebring International Raceway. 

Greatest accomplishment yet as an Athlete? 

Winning the 24 hours Nürburgring twice. The first time in 2015 and the second in 2017. 

Do you have a pre-race ritual and/or superstition?

I don't really have a specific ritual. I just like to take some time alone to focus before getting in the car. 

If you were not racing, what would you do as a career?

Probably a Police Officer.  

What does the word "Rad" mean to you?

 My new hat collaboration! That's pretty Rad I would say. ;)
