I don't like to go over curbs, because I don't want to be hard on the car.


It's like when people talk about driving F1 cars in the rain. I have absolutely no problem with it.


I'm brave to say that I won't take this sort of risk.


It's always better to speak the language of the team. Not only for the direct contact with everyone - sometimes it also helps you to understand the mentality of the people in the team a bit better.

I always work the same way, starting from the beginning of the weekend, so I know at the beginning of the race, from all that I have analysed during the practice, whether I will win the race or not.


When I test I never go right to the limit. Only because when you are below the limit you can go at the same speed all day, and that's the only way you can be absolutely sure about what you are testing.


Without going to what I think is my limit. I always say that my ideal is to get pole with the minimum effort, and to win the race at the slowest speed possible.


I have no problem with the people who work hard to get success. But I think people are very jealous about success. I work very hard and they don't appreciate that.
