“Last year in Miami was my first experience of the Race Of Champions and now I’m happy to be back. This is my first time in Saudi Arabia and it’s a great experience for all of us to be in this country. It’s always fun to meet new people and everyone has been very welcoming. We also get to meet different drivers from all over the world and it’s great to have a chance to spend time together away from the track. This circuit is very different to the Miami one, with the crossover bridge and a lot of big corners, so it should be a lot of fun.”
