They did not need much time to chill out. Gestures, laugh, interruptions of the other, all in all very lively interview that was a nice meeting for both sides. That was the atmosphere when Ales Valenta, Olympics winner in acrobatic skiing - jumps, met Erik Janis. How the two sportsmen from quite different areas found a way to each other?

The acrobatic skiing champion and winner of the Czech StarDance competition began to work with the Sport newspaper and for one of his interviews picked up the young driver of the BPA sport marketing.

The acrobat and driver met directly in the editorial office in Prague- Holesovice and talked for more than one hour. Salt Lake City 2002 Olympics winner brought a dictaphone and a notepad full of questions. "Tell me, why every boy dreams about Formula 1?" was one of the questions. Twenty years old Mercedes Benz driver of the Mucke Motorsport team answered in the blink of an eye: "When you get there, you are the king. That's how it is."

The full interview "Ales Valenta asks.... Erik Janis" will be published in the Sport newspaper on Friday, in its Magazin Sport insert.
