What is it about automotive and motorsport projects that ignites your engineering passion?
The fast pace and quick decision making you need to apply. Also the level of technological development.
On a more personal basis, internal combustion engines and turbochargers ignited my passion when I was a child and I always loved the sounds cars make while accelerating.
What has struck you from a personal and engineering point of view since you began your placement at INFINITI / Renault Sport Formula One Team?
The way information is developed, stored and is readily available for all engineers to develop new products has amazed me. I think I would spend my whole life investigating just 10 per cent of what they have in their database.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I see myself as the technical director of a F1 team.
Biggest positive impact in life?
My uncle, he pushed me to come to Mexico and change my life.
Most looking forward to about living/working in the UK?
The extensive racing industry in the UK.
I am passionate about my career.
