DRIVER #2 // RUSSIAN TIME
How big is your family?
I have my father, my mother and one younger sister.
If you were an animal which one would it be?
A duck! I love ducks…
What’s your favourite pastime?
I like playing games, I have a Playstation 4, so some kind of video games.
Who would play you in a biopic about your life?
Jackie Chan! [Laughs]
What was your best subject at school?
Tell us one thing nobody knows about you…
That’s a difficult question! I don’t really have anything…
What’s your strangest talent or dinner-party trick?
Ah yeah, I can do some card tricks. Tada! [Laughs]
Favourite person to follow on Twitter/Instagram?
Some Japanese talent, I don’t really know who I can say. On Twitter? Autosport Magazine. Oh, better yet: Nirei Fukuzumi!
What is the worst thing you’ve ever heard over the radio?
Last year, racing in Formula 3, I heard “oh you have a five second penalty” and I think “oh, sh*t!”. I was driving really nervously after that.
Favourite moment of a race?
This weekend is my first time doing a pitstop in a formula car, so that’s really exciting!
Name one thing that your engineer keeps telling to do?
What’s your usual reaction to “let’s take a group selfie?”
[Pulls a pose] Yeaaaah!
Have you ever been on your own Wikipedia page?
Wikipedia? I don’t know if I even have one. I’ll check!
What’s the weirdest dream you’ve ever had?
Weird? [Looks puzzled] Some strange dream…no, nothing like that!
Where do you keep your trophies?
I don’t know to be honest! Honda or someone…there’s a few trophies in my house but not a lot, the others go to some sponsors or my grandparents’ house.
