Meet Nico

I started racing quite late, when I was 15, by seeing my father driving in Europe. Before trying to become a racing champion, I had the ambition to become a tennis professional. I played tennis for 12 years (from 3 to 15 years old), then I had knee problems which forced me to stop. Then I discovered racing with a new target : becoming an IndyCar champion in a few years ! That's why I decided to move quickly in the US, to grow up through the Mazda Road to Indy. 

Back in Europe, my racing goal is now to achieve many titles, wins and pole positions in every championship I drive, starting from Blancpain GT and ELMS (endurance).

I already achieved 20 Wins, 42 Podiums and 20 Pole positions. But it's only the beginning...

Apart from that, I’m an ambitious and competitive driver. I’m always concentrating on my goal during a race weekend, but I like having laughs with my friends when I have the occasion! I play golf as well, as soon as I can.
