A little bit about me

My career started at the age of 14 driving gokarts. Shortly after that I had the chance to step up into single seaters and with the tremendous help from Lohmann Motorsport I was able to speed up my career. I earned my first F3 victory straight in the first race and fulfilled my F1 dreams with an unbelievable and successful test with the BMW WilliamsF1 team. I am happy and thankful about all my chances to be a professional racing driver until today. I got educated by the Porsche Junior program, grew up with BMW Motorsport, had two very successful years with Ferrari and I am really proud and honoured to join now the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing team driving the all new Ford GT.
