Bio

I have build my life around motorsport world. I started to challenge in the
circuit at 7 years old with go-kart and racing with guys older then me with
greatest results. For this reason I passed to single seater at only 16,
becoming straightaway champion in the named Formula Campus and in
Formula Renault. A game that suddenly becomes a profession. Racing in
the major International categories like Formula 3 and Formula 3000 where I
begin to confront with the high level of motorsport championships. Years
of sacrifices, defeats and hard wins, years where the car counts more than
the driver, years of experience for life.

Then 2003, I’ve been called to be F1 test driver for Minardi team and then in
2004 official driver. A very important moment for me made of glory,
commitment and devotion but this didn’t satisfy my thirst for success.
Therefore in 2005 I decide to make a step backward to start again to be
successful. After 2 years in GP2 I have reached GT world becoming one of
the most representative driver in the category. Beside many wins from
2007 I’ve been rewarded as best FIA GT driver in 2008.

My goal has always been to be my best in everything I do. While training
and racing. To be professional I train my body and my brain everyday of my
life to not loose concentration.

My life out of races is very simple. I have my house, my girlfriend, my dog
and my friends.
