What brought you to the sport?
I have to admit that as far as I can remember, I have heard people talk about hydroplanes races and I have watched hydroplanes races. Also, being part of a team for 3 years made my interest in the sport grow a lot.
How was your performance in 2018? What were your strong and weak points?
For sure I improved as a driver and gained confidence in myself. I found that I was not satisfied just to do laps but that I had the competitive spirit in me.
For the coming season organising our team is a priority.
Are there any changes to your boat or your team?
I changed completely my boat. I will now be driving the boat that Yan Beaupré used to drive. I also have a new motor and there’s some changes in the team.
Do you have any rituals just before the race?
I tie myself up!
No, seriously I listen to music to put me in my space and I think of what is to come.
What are your goals for the 2019 season?
I would like to win at least one race!
