Are you working on any cars at the moment?
[Laughs] Not at the moment, but even if I was, I couldn't tell you.
How hard is it to become a racing driver?
Most don't realise, but racing involves a lot of support from teams, sponsors, manufacturers, and it all has to be packaged very well for a race to function properly. All that is very difficult to organise. Of course, when you're out on track and competing, it's an extremely dangerous sport.
Were you scared of driving at the Nurburgring?
Just last week I was driving in an endurance race at the Nurburgring. Was I scared? No. But I could tell I was doing something very dangerous. Doing 167mph on the autobahn is one thing - that's dangerous in itself - but at the Nurburgring, you're doing 167mph on a bumpy track and going through corners. When you think about its, it's kinda' crazy.
