|Not too long and the first test days in Jerez take place. Are you excited?
Of course, I am. I cannot wait for the chance to get into the Racing Engineering car for the first time; I am working hard on my preparation for this. I have been working on my physical preparation constantly in Italy. Now we will work on the technical preparations using the simulator. Jerez, like Barcelona, is a fast track with quick and slow corners, very technical, and I think it’s a great opportunity to test the Racing Engineering car on tracks like these.
What have you done during winter to prepare yourself for this season?
Well, I think that preparation never finishes. I was working on my physical preparation all the time, not like in Europe, as there it is practically the only thing I do all day long, but in Colombia I trained once per day and also took advantage of being there, so I really enjoyed spending time with my family as I usually don’t see them too much. I always took time to train and I don’t think I will have any physical problems.
In a month’s time there will be the first GP2 race of the 2013 season taking place. What are your expectations for this season?
I hope that this will be a very positive and very good year. I hope to continue to learn many things, validate the many things I have learned until now. I hope to be able to show everyone what I am really capable of.
Racing Engineering is a very good team and I hope that together we can do a very good job and achieve results that are satisfying for both of us.
