Roman Ziemian, one of this season’s debutantes from the Octane 126 racing group, was a guest of “Fast Lane” on November 13th this year. The Polish driver told about himself and his passions, which are closely related to Ferrari and classical music and art patronage. Below is an interview with racing driver Roman Ziemian:
This is your first year in the Ferrari Challenge. Why did you decide to take part in this cycle?
“I joined the Ferrari family several years ago. I used to race with other brands in the past, but then I was attracted to the magic of the brand.
How did your passion for racing begin?
“I raced with other cars in semi-professional categories for a long time. After the accident, I had to give up the sport, but quickly realized that I couldn’t do without the adrenaline I felt on the track. Car sport has always been my dream.
Which track was the most interesting for you and which one did you like the most?
“I would love to race in Abu Dhabi. I spend part of the year in Dubai, so for me it would be like racing at home. As for the track I liked the most, I would say Mugello for now.
How would you describe your driving style?
“During my first two races, I felt intimidated. Not only were other drivers driving really fast, but I was afraid to keep my speed too high. I didn’t want to get too close to the car in front and couldn’t find the courage to overtake my rivals. It was different in Mugello. It was the first race in which I let go and overtook seven rivals. Before, I was a gentleman, I let the fastest drivers through, now I want to try to be more aggressive”.
How do you prepare for the race? Many drivers use classical music. Do you do that?
“I love classical music. I studied at the conservatory and now I have many friends who are musicians or composers. I love the violin, for example. But I admit that I also listen to a lot of rock and pop.
