YOU ARE THE FIRST FORMULA ONE DRIVER TO BE APPOINTED AS AN AMBASSADOR FOR G.H. MUMM, HOW DOES THAT FEEL?
I have one of the best jobs in the world known for being the ultimate test of technical skill and determination as well as having the most iconic celebratory moment when you succeed. My work with the iconic House of Champagne, G.H.MUMM, means that I am forever focused on winning to get to that celebratory moment. It is a great honour and privilege. As any Formula One fan will know, G.H.MUMM has played a huge part in the sport over the last 14 years, so it is a personal achievement to be able to represent them on and off the track.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ARE THE VALUES YOU SHARE WITH G.H.MUMM?
The similarities in our values are simple – we both have a passion for victory and a drive to be the very best in the field. I have seen firsthand their commitment to innovation, their pioneering spirit, bravery and the quest for the highest possible perfection, these are just some of the many things we share. You can’t be the best if you aren’t willing to be brave and take risks – this is what I do in every race and G.H.MUMM understand this. We understand each other and equally respect our ambition.
WHAT WAS IT LIKE WORKING WITH G.H.MUMM AND DAVID GUETTA ON THE CREATION OF THE MUSIC VIDEO?
That was a day I will never forget and in all honestly, I could not turn down a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This was a great moment in my life. I mean I got to live like a true rock star for one day! I knew from the moment David and I were introduced, we would have fun in creating something special despite having completely different day jobs, we really connected. Sadly, David got to win the race in the music video but we all know what would happen in real life!
