What music do you like to listen to when you drive?
Rock and pop before the start of a special stage (to create dynamic and pump up the energy from within) and soft lyrics after the finish of a stage (calming down not listening to any text, just let the rhythm carry me away).
Do you have any mileage that you fancy the most to drive, why this one?
Love to drive a cabriole, wind in the hair, sun shining along and listen to good music and my favorite drive is on the roads of Hawaii.
What is your best tip to drive smart?
Find the enjoyment in focusing on just driving when I am behind the steering wheel. Keep a flow in my driving, planning ahead.
