IN ALL SERIOUSNESS:
Where are you from?
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!
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. ;)

What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
What’s something you wish you didn’t spend so much money on?
Most played song at the moment?
"Sicko Mode" - Travis Scott
What are you best known for?
Controlling every situation
What would your pet say about you?
He'd probably say that I am not home enough.
