/ 2018 Qualification:
Did not compete
Q: Which car is your favourite to drive?
A: It would be the Force India.
Q: Which was your favourite year in F1 and why?
A: 2008 - Simply because it had one of the most historical endings to a championship ever.
Q: What type of driving style do you think you have?
A: My driving style is probably a bit more calculating, but still aggressive when it is needed.
Q: What platform did you first start racing online with?
A: I started racing online on the PlayStation 4.
Q: How do you prepare before a race?
A: For a race in an online lobby I would say 5-10 hours, but obviously going into the Esports series it will be a lot more.
Q: What is your favourite track on the F1 Game?
Q: Have you ever been to an F1 race weekend before?
A: I have been to Hockenheim three times, Spa and Abu Dhabi once, and then Silverstone obviously.
Q: If you could pick any race in the world to go to, which would it be and why?
A: I would love to go to the GP in Singapore to experience a night race and to see the city in general.
Q: What was your most memorable online race?
A: The race in AOR in Brazil season 14, where I lost out on my first ever AOR win because of a three second time penalty - You learn for those sorts of mistakes!
Q: If you think there is something/anything that will give you an advantage over your competitors, what is it and how will you use it?
A: My pure determination to perform at my best will be a key factor - I am focusing on improving in every area, especially my fitness is another level compared to last year - it makes me able to perform at my best over a longer period of time.
Q: Outside of racing, who is your hero/inspirational character?
A: There are many inspirational characters out there, but I will actually point out my parents on this one. They are always very supportive and there to help whenever it is needed :)
