What motivated you to get into motorsport?
Well I think my dad motivated me in some way as he always loved Motorsport so when I was small he is the one who toke me to the go karts and then I tried it and just loved it!
Who is your inspiration and why?
I don’t really have one inspirational person in my life, I normally look to different people and take the best of them!
What advice would you give to girls thinking about getting into motorsport?
I’d say: If you like motorsport and you want to get to the top then just work hard everyday and make the best out of it and of course have fun! Follow your dreams.
What would it mean to you to win the W Series title?
For me it would be a really big step on my career, I’d be the first woman to win in a female single seater championship and that would feel awesome because it’s something unique and I would be so happy with all the effort done over the last 8 years.
It would show me I can do what ever I propose in my life.
