“Lonato is my favourite track" said the Red Bull driver."From time to time I love driving karts to train a bit. I am happy that this circuit keeps being successful, I see that the Winter Cup is still as important and has a lot of drivers on track as it used to have back in my days on karts. I would have loved to watch the race next Sunday, but I will be busy with F1 testing in Barcelona and soon after we will have to head to Australia”.
