"To leave Renault has not been a problem, I'm more motivated now"
How do you feel in your current team?
Thanks to my engineer (Jesús Sánchez, Chus) and to the whole mechanics' team, I feel perfectly at ease and I am learning much with them.
In addition, our team is a very competitive and professional group; they are wonderful with me and have a lot of patience.
Did you adapt well to this new car, the Dallara Nissan?
According to the few races we've done since the beginning of the season, I have got the feeling of getting well used of the team's car.
You were dropped from the Renault DD program, did you lose motivation, or contrarily, you've won much more?
On the contrary, I am much more motivated and I hope being able to get a podium this year.
How do you see the competition's level? Do you believe you can reach it?
The level of competition is very high in the World Series by Nissan given that drivers taking part in it have much more experience in this championship.
I hope to be at the same level, or better, before the end of the year.
How do you get along with your team companion?
My relationship with my teammate is great because I already knew him from the Renault Development Driver's program. He is a great GUY and we do help each other as much as we can.
What do you think about the merge between the Formula Renault V6 Series and the World Series by Nissan?
I believe it is going to be a great championship and I'll love to be in it. The fact that Renault and RPM competitions' get merged will bring prestige to the competition and more motivation to all drivers.
