Q&A WITH COLIN KOLLES, HISPANIA RACING’S TEAM PRINCIPAL


Wednesday, 15th December, 2010

Colin Kolles: It was a difficult year but we were the most reliable new team. I think the only reason why we did not finish 10th is that teams like Lotus and Virgin had more experienced drivers during the whole season. I think that in testing we showed quite a good performance in relation to the other new teams.

Q&A with Pastor Maldonado

<br />
Q1: What started your career in motorsport?
PM: Having competed themselves, my father and my uncle are very passionate about motorsport, so I inherited it from them. In my city of Maracay, there is a go kart circuit about five minutes from my home. When I was about three or four years old I said I wanted to race but I was too young, then when I reached the age of seven my father gave me a kart and we started from there. From that moment until now we have never stopped.
