“1998. I was four and on a random Sunday I turned the tele. It was the Monaco Grand Prix, I think. The cars going mighty fast near the wall and the pit stop attracted me. Mika Hakkinen became my favorite mainly because of his surname. The second race that I watched was the Belgian Grand Prix”.

5) Your thoughts about social media with F1?
“It made me discover a lot of fans. Especially when you live in a country where F1 isn’t really a big deal (for most) and all what they care about is some blokes running behind a ball and acting like they are hurt when falling down. It also helps fans to know more about the sport and drivers. Thanks twitter”.
