    Q: You can only drive at one circuit for the rest of your life – which circuit, past or present from anywhere in the world, do you choose?

    Q: You must choose a city for a new Formula One street circuit – which city, anywhere in the world, do you choose, and why?

    A: Kuopio, Finland. That’s where I live :P

    Q: If you could choose one former world champion as your team mate, who would you choose and why?

    A: Ayrton Senna, if he was still alive. I’d like to know more about his driving style, especially with the turbo engines.

    Q: Formula One innovations of the past – ground effect, active suspension, turbocharging, six wheels, the list goes on. If you could bring back one past innovation, what would it be and why?

    A: Make the wings smaller and bring back ground effect with big fat slick tyres, that should make for some great racing.

    Q: What innovations would you like to see in the future?

    A: The rules are so strict these days that I can’t think of anything really innovative – if I could, I’d be an engineer.

    Q: You can only drive at one circuit for the rest of your life – which circuit, past or present from anywhere in the world, do you choose?

    A: Tough choice. It would be either Nordschleife or Pescara. Most likely I’d choose the Ring, as it just has everything in it.

    Q: Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Tyrrell, March – just some of the teams that have departed the sport. Which former team would you most liked to have raced with and why?

    A: Tyrrell in the 90s, as they would’ve needed a pay-driver :P

    Q: You have to design a new F1 circuit, combining all your favourite corners from other tracks around the world. Which three corners are top of your list and why?

    A: Pouhon from Spa, Turn 8 from Turkey and the Esses from Suzuka. Why? Because they are awesome.

    Q: You can travel back in time and compete in any decade of Formula One racing, from the 1950s to the 1990s. Which decade would you choose and why?

    A: The 1970s. Full of innovation, (slowly) increasing safety and the sport still had real characters. And I’d the variation in tracks: going from a track Nivelles-Baulers to Österreichring and Nürburgring must have been quite the experience.

    Q: What current Formula One regulation would you most like to change and why?

    A: DRS. It makes racing artificial. It’s like those power boosts in console games. Next year we’ll probably have a competition caution if someone is more than 10 seconds ahead.

    Q: If you could pick two Formula One greats of the past (from different eras) to watch race against each other, whom would you pick?

    A: Gilles Villeneuve and Mika Häkkinen. Those two going head to head in qualifying would have been epic.

    Q: If you were a team boss, which current driver would you pick first for your team?

    A: Nico Rosberg. Has enough experience to lead a team these days while being still a relatively new driver (so I don’t have to pay him that much!)

    Q: Just 19 of the world’s motor racing circuits feature on the current F1 calendar. You can add one more. Which circuit do you pick and why?

    A: Bathurst. Have you seen footage of Jenson’s drive there? Amazing.

    Q: You are having a dinner party and can invite four people from the world of motorsport, past or present. Who do you invite?

    A: Juan Manuel Fangio, Jim Clark, Colin Chapman and Brian Redman.

    Q: You are given the chance to drive any legendary Formula One car of the past (excluding those made by your own team). Which car would you choose?

    A: Either the original Lotus 49 or Tyrrell P34 – both quite legendary.

    Q: Rooftop swimming pool, bowling alley, revolving sushi bar – just some of the features most F1 motorhomes don’t possess. If you could add one thing to your team’s motorhome, what would it be?

    A: Our simulator from the factory. It would be nice to drive the track almost simultaneously in real life and virtually.

    Q: Imagine you have just won the world title. Where would you go for your celebratory meal and what would you choose from the menu?

    A: Meal? I’d be drinking.

    Q: You must choose a city for a new Formula One street circuit – which city, anywhere in the world, do you choose, and why?

    A: London. Just yes!

    Q: If you could choose one former world champion as your team mate, who would you choose and why?

    A: Jim Clark – the one and the only. I was about 30 years too late to see him race, I’d have loved to have had that opportunity.

    Q: Formula One innovations of the past – ground effect, active suspension, turbocharging, six wheels, the list goes on. If you could bring back one past innovation, what would it be and why?

    A: Ground effect – the cars could go super fast yet still race closely and fairly.

    Q: What innovations would you like to see in the future?

    A: Bring back ground effect and reduce aerodynamic grip!

    Q: You can only drive at one circuit for the rest of your life – which circuit, past or present from anywhere in the world, do you choose?

    A: Silverstone was a close second, but it must be Albert Park.

    Q: Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Tyrrell, March – just some of the teams that have departed the sport. Which former team would you most liked to have raced with and why?

    A: Maserati. Their 1950’s motors were works of art.

    Q: You have to design a new F1 circuit, combining all your favourite corners from other tracks around the world. Which three corners are top of your list and why?

    A: Eau Rouge (because the quick change of direction and massive incline is simply sublime), Stowe (because its blind at about 150 mph) and the Senna S at Interlagos (because the track looks to just fall away).

    Q: You can travel back in time and compete in any decade of Formula One racing, from the 1950s to the 1990s. Which decade would you choose and why?

    A: 1960s, because the cars looked absolutely stunning and I never got to see them.

    Q: What current Formula One regulation would you most like to change and why?

    A: The times when you can use DRS makes a race too strategic. Let them use the DRS anywhere they want to and feed the KERS directly into the power-train automatically!

    Q: If you could pick two Formula One greats of the past (from different eras) to watch race against each other, whom would you pick?

    A: Jim Clark and Ayrton Senna because that is possibly the greatest unanswered question of Formula One – who would win?

    Q: If you were a team boss, which current driver would you pick first for your team?

    A: Even though I’m not a fan, Fernando Alonso. He’s got it all – speed, overtaking and knowledge of development. I’d just have to give him a good car to stop the whinging!

    Q: Just 19 of the world’s motor racing circuits feature on the current F1 calendar. You can add one more. Which circuit do you pick and why?

    A: I want to go back to Detroit because it looks so fun to drive!

    Q: You are having a dinner party and can invite four people from the world of motorsport, past or present. Who do you invite?

    A: Jim Clark, Martin Brundle (for the jokes), Jenson Button and Heikki Kovalainen.

    Q: You are given the chance to drive any legendary Formula One car of the past (excluding those made by your own team). Which car would you choose?

    A: The Lotus 49C.

    Q: Rooftop swimming pool, bowling alley, revolving sushi bar – just some of the features most F1 motorhomes don’t possess. If you could add one thing to your team’s motorhome, what would it be?

    A: Cricket pitch – those motorhomes look pretty big from the outside!

    Q: Imagine you have just won the world title. Where would you go for your celebratory meal and what would you choose from the menu?

    A: To a downtown Interlagos ‘meathouse’ like Rubens Barrichello!

    Q: You have to design a new F1 circuit, combining all your favourite corners from other tracks around the world. Which three corners are top of your list and why? Turn 8 at Istanbul and Turns 11 and 12 from Melbourne. 11 and 12 would go downhill underneath turn 8.

    Q: You can travel back in time and compete in any decade of Formula One racing, from the 1950s to the 1990s. Which decade would you choose and why? 1990s because it’s the closest to modern day Formula One.

    Q: What current Formula One regulation would you most like to change and why? Bring back tyre wars, I thought having two tyre manufacturers in F1 was interesting.

    Q: If you could pick two Formula One greats of the past (from different eras) to watch race against each other, whom would you pick? Ayrton Senna vs. Juan Pablo Montoya.

    Q: If you were a team boss, which current driver would you pick first for your team? Fernando Alonso.
