Q&A

Q1. Who is your motorsport idol?

Carlos Sainz/Luis Moya as a crew, I grew up watching them on TV and I have always wanted to achieve their level.

Q2. What are your hobbies?

Going to the cinema, watching TV shows, and dinner with good friends. I also enjoy spending time with my nephews playing silly games.
I used to make car models when I was a child so now I’m really lucky to play with a full scale version!

Q3. What is your ideal destination for a holiday?

Asturias, in the north of Spain, is where my mother spent her childhood. I’ve visited every year since I was born; there’s amazing food, all kind of landscapes (mountains, beaches, forest, etc…) and the people are very nice and friendly.

Q4. Which profession would you have chosen if you hadn’t become a rally driver?

Most likely something related to vehicles, like a mechanic. Being around cars and fuel is my passion.

Q5. What is your favourite food?

Spanish food, especially Mediterranean style, but I also really enjoy a good piece of meat or some Italian food – pizza made in a classic oven, for example.

Q6.Describe yourself in 3 words

Perseverant. Organized. Sarcastic.
