Known for killing the stereotype and proving that girls can drive, race and win, right from the first time the professional commercial pilot hit the racetracks in 2009

You, in three words
Passion, perfection, precision.

First racing experience
I came second in my first race. It was special to me because I was in pole position (first place) till the very last lap.

Dream wheels
Mercedes Formula 1 cars.

Favourite sportspersons
Ayrton Senna, Lewis Hamilton.

If not a racer or pilot
I’d have been a dinosaur! Actually, I’d have liked to have been an astronaut.

On your bucket list
To beat the national champions, go to Hawaii and swim with dolphins, and to travel to outer space.

Motto you live by
‘If you want something you’ve never had, do something you’ve never done’.

Other sports you enjoy
Swimming, badminton, pool.

Favourite destinations
Home, because I’m hardly there; Singapore and Hawaii…and my racetracks!

Looking forward to in 2016
To get stronger and fitter to race against the boys!
