How did you get to motorsport and co-driving / How does it appear to be your vocation?
In my little hometown, there was a guy who became professional rally driver. After only one race, his co-driver gave up. I was young and my only concern was motorcycling, but this guy conviced me to co-drive and hired me. It was in 1994, I was 14 years old. From that time I never stopped.
Your most beautiful/biggest emotion in your motorsport career ?
My biggest emotion is when we won the Dakar for the first time with Carlos - in 2010. Now when I have a look back on my career I am so thankful: I got the chance to race beside great drivers. It’s been 22 years that I am in motorsport and it keeps going good for me!
