Q&A

Q: Who is your favourite F1 driver ever?

A: It's Fernando Alonso. Since I was young, I have always watched his races with my dad and have loved watching him from the time he was at Renault. I have always felt emotional watching him.

Q: Which circuit is your favourite on F1 2017?

A: Silverstone. I like the sections of fast corners that you have there, particularly Stowe and Copse.

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

A: The Ferrari - an easy choice for an Italian!

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

A: I spend a lot of time practising in the build-up to the semi-final. I didn't get a copy of the game until quite close to the event, so I spent around 15 hours a week practising before I travelled to London.

Q: How did it feel to be at the live F1 Esports Series semi-finals in London?

A: I was very happy to make it to the semi-finals. I knew I had to race very hard but I was pretty sure to be able to make it through to the Final in Abu Dhabi. To manage a second place was incredible.

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

A: I've never been to Abu Dhabi and since I'm not 18 my sister and family will travel with me. I am very much looking forward to being on the plane and travelling there.

Q: How well do you think you will do at the Finals in Abu Dhabi?

A: I hope to make it into the top ten but it will be very tough. I'll be doing my best to achieve my goal but it won't be easy.
