Hobbies: Motorsports, racing simulators (Rfactor), tennis

Snapshot: I started racing quite late, when I was 15, by seeing my father driving in Europe. Before trying to become a racing champion, I had the ambition to become a tennis professional. I played tennis for 12 years (from 3 to 15 years old), then I had knee problems which forced me to stop. Then I discovered racing and that’s my new target – to become an IndyCar champion in few years by growing up through the Mazda Road to Indy.

Racing goal: To become a Verizon IndyCar Series champion by winning every championship on the way up, step by step

Racing hero: Ayrton Senna.

My fitness routine includes: A couple of hours daily training (cardio, body workout, swimming)
