Q&A

Q: Who is your favourite F1 driver ever?

A: Mika Hakkinen.

Q: Which circuit is your favourite on F1 2017?

A: Hungary is my favourite track of all time, and not just on F1 2017. It's twisty... high speed, low speed and the track doesn't end.

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

A: The Mercedes or the McLaren.

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

A: I used to watch my dad playing F1 97 on the PS1. But the first one I remember playing with my brother and my dad was Grand Prix 3.

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

A: If there's no competition to prepare for, probably 3 to4 hours a week. But before a competition I try to increase that to 5 to6 hours a week.

Q: Who is your toughest online opponent?

A: My brother obviously (!) and also Brendon Leigh.

Q:What are your brother's strengths? And what are you better at?

A:His starts are amazing. We saw at the semi-finals that he went from ninth to fourth in the space of about three corners. But he's not as consistent as me!

Q:It's pretty special that two members of the same family will be at the Final in Abu Dhabi. Were you always confident you'd both make it?

A: We were desperate that both of us made it through. If we hadn't made it through together, and one was left behind, that would have made things a bit tricky at home!

Q: Which of the current F1 drivers would you most like to meet?

A: Everyone would be nice. But Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso are my favourite drivers from the current grid so they would be top of my list.
