Favourite BMW M Motorsport race car: The BMW Z4 GTE. The sound of the naturally aspirated V8 engine is something I will always remember.
Goals for my motorsport career: I would like to win all the big races. I have won Daytona, I still want to win the 24h Nürburgring, the 24h Spa, 12h Bathurst, Petit Le Mans, 12h Sebring. And I want to be part of BMW M Motorsport’s top programmes in the future.
My life motto: Just enjoy everything you are doing and keep working hard for your goals. Normally, that will get you there.
Hobbies: Rock climbing has been a big part of my life. And then outdoor sports in general and hiking in the wilderness are some of my favourite things to do.
