We'll start with racing, because we need to answer the obvious question, namely: is your career incomplete because you didn't do F1? "Nah, not at all, I've had a great career in America, and there's less pressure - F1's an aggressive environment." You'd think that any European single-seat racer, particularly one whose hero is Jim Clarke, who has Jackie Stewart to thank for giving him a career leg-up, would yearn for F1. Not Dario. And I believe him - his open, expressive features must make him a crap poker player - but he comes across as someone who's genuinely happy with his lot.
