Hobbies: Sports, travel, reading, going to the beach and fashion

Snapshot: I’ve always been very into sports growing up, everything from handball to horseback riding. I am not currently doing anything specific outside racing, sports-wise, but I love to try different things and to follow the different sports and keep up with what’s going on.

Racing goal: To become an IndyCar Series champion

My fitness routine includes: Running, stair training, boxing, yoga and weight training

Any pre-race rituals or superstitions: No

An interesting note about me: When I was little, we were supposed to travel around the world in a sailboat. Out of health reasons, we had to turn back home, but the beach and ocean is something I still really enjoy.
