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 and that’s my new target – to become an IndyCar champion in a few years by growing up through the Mazda Road to Indy. 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!

My racing goal is to become a Verizon IndyCar Series champion by winning every championship on the way up, step by step, starting with the USF2000 championship last year!
