Formula Renault 3.5

My first drive
My parents took me go-karting at Silverstone for my eighth birthday. I’d been nagging them about it for ages and they finally gave in. That was where the story started.

My favourite track
It’s hard to pick one. Spa-Francorchamps and the Nürburgring are fantastic tracks but the one that stands out for me, because it’s the most original, is Monaco. I’d always dreamed of winning there. I wasn’t that far away in GP2 in 2010 and now it’s happened in the FR3.5 Series. The next step is to win there in Formula One.

The first thing I do when I get home from a race
I usually get back very late so I just go to bed. I do a lot of travelling between Formula Renault 3.5 Series and Formula One with the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team, so I do less fun things like do my laundry!

My favourite driver
He’s German, he’s 43, he’s amazing and I’m lucky enough to work with him. I was totally overawed when I met Michael Schumacher, but he’s turned out to be a great guy.

My favourite singer or group
I love music and I listen to a lot of it, especially on race weekends. Pendulum and Skrillex are my two favourite groups right now, and I get really pumped up when I listen to Skrillex before a qualifying session or when I’m working out.

If I hadn’t been a driver, I would have been a …
I love sport in general and cricket and football in particular, so I think I would have tried to make a go of it in one of those sports.

My reaction when I see myself on TV
I switch the channel…
