As one of this season’s newest faces, Spyker race driver Adrian Sutil remains something of an unknown quantity. We caught up with the young German to try to discover a little of what makes him tick…

Q: What's in your garage at home?
A:
Sorry, but there is no garage - and no car! I just moved from Germany to Switzerland and I’m travelling most of time, so there is no need to have a car at home. But I'd love to have a Spyker street car - I think I’ll have to talk to my team!

Q: Tell us something we don't know about you?
A:
If I weren't in F1, I would be a stuntman.

Q: Last good deed you did?
A:
I don’t really remember my last good deed… looks as if I’m a bad boy. I’ll have to change and will tell you all my good deeds next time!

Q: Your favourite song for karaoke?
A:
I had some during my time in Japan. ‘We are the Champions‘ by Queen for example, or ‘My Way’ by Frank Sinatra.

Q: Funniest thing you've read about yourself in the press?
A:
That I would earn 250,000 Euros in 2007.

Q: Your most embarrassing moment?
A:
No embarrassing moments that I can remember and if I did, I wouldn’t tell.

Q: When you're at home, what do you listen to when driving?
A:
US, UK and German charts, nothing special, sometimes 2Pac.

Q: Best part of being a Formula One driver - apart from the driving?
A:
Flying around the world, meeting many interesting people.

Q: Your most prized possession?
A:
Nothing that would be worth (enough) to tell. I’ll have to work on it and make some money!

Q: Person you most admire?
A:
I do not admire one special person, but rather all those who do have a goal and go straight for it, even if the way is long and hard - all those who believe in themselves.

Q: Do you have any bad habits?
A:
No bad ones, but I’m very impatient and do want to have everything at once!
