How’s the season going so far?
It’s been a difficult season so far for the #5 car. Before Austin we had finished only one race out of five, so that says it all.
Still Le Mans I would say. Basically we were there and had the pace to win the race. So it’s something we need to be happy with and we have to be proud of.
Also Le Mans, because at the end we simply didn’t make it to finally bring the win home.
Who (other than yourself!) is driving particularly well at the moment?
Séb [Buemi] is doing a very good job, particularly in our car he is always quick, doesn’t make big mistakes and you can always rely on him.
Where would you like to take the World Endurance Championship if you could race anywhere?
Monza would be interesting.
Describe the challenge of Le Mans in three words.

What do you still want to achieve that you haven’t yet?

The best advice you’ve been given?
I really don’t know anymore.
What would you be if you weren’t a professional driver?
