I’ve managed to turn my hobby to a profession which is amazing. What I enjoy the most is to have the full control of the car wherever the road is, whatever the conditions are. It’s the best feeling.
2008 – Rally Sweden. Not only because it was my first victory in WRC but also because there, I’ve beaten the record of my idol Henri Toivonen and it was such a nice and important moment for me.
I’m very, very organized and I don’t like when the things are dirty or messy.
Life is up and down also in motorsport but when you are committed to the sport you do, you never give up.
