Q: Who is your favourite F1 driver ever?

A: My favourite driver ever is Michael Schumacher, but from the current grid it's Kimi Raikkonen. He replaced Michael at Ferrari in 2007 and ever since then I have followed his career closely.

Q: Which circuit is your favourite on F1 2017?

A: It would be Malaysia. I love the rhythm of it and have always enjoyed it on all racing games.

Q: Which car is your favourite to drive on F1 2017?

A: It's the Renault.

Q: What is the first driving video game that you remember playing?

A: F1 99 on the PS1. I was only five years old but I remember it well!

Q: How much practice do you put in on F1 2017?

A: Way too much! For the semi-finals a lot of practice was required. I had to squeeze in 3 to4 hours a day around my job.

Q: Who is your toughest online opponent?

A: Frederik Rasmussen and Maximilian Benecke are two of the best drivers to have reached the Finals. Knowing you are in the same race as them makes it an intense experience.

Q: Did you feel under pressure at the F1 Esports Series live semi-finals in London?

A: I was relaxed, as after the first race I was in a good position. I enjoyed the whole experience, big time. I thought I had a decent chance of qualifying for Abu Dhabi based on the pace that I had at home. Anything can happen during a race, of course, but I felt that if things went smoothly I'd be ok.

Q: Have you ever been to an F1 race weekend before?

A: I went to Hockenheim in 2012.

Q: What are you most looking forward to about going to Abu Dhabi for the Finals?

A: I've only been outside of Europe once, so the thing I am most excited about is travelling to another part of the world.
