NICO MÜLLER AND ROBIN FRIJNS
Nico Müller: Mister Frijns, first question: What is my favourite holiday destination?
Robin Frijns: I would say that you really like Greece.
Nico Müller: No, Sardinia. I’m the Italian boy.
Nico Müller: How many languages can I speak and name all of these, please.
Robin Frijns: Swiss German. Is that a language?
Nico Müller: I wouldn’t count that.
Robin Frijns: So, English, French, German and Italian. You also speak a bit of Spanish.
Nico Müller: Yeah.
Nico Müller: Now you have to read what is written here.
Robin Frijns: “Hend miar üs vorher scho mol troffa?“ What does that mean? “Hend miar”, means: “Give me”?
Nico Müller: No. It’s “Have we”.
Robin Frijns: Oh, close. “Hend miar üs vorher”, means: “before”?
Nico Müller: Ja, ja. You’re good. Yeah. Like: “Have we ever”.
Robin Frijns: “Scho mol, scho mol troffe – troffa?”. Does “Troffa” mean: “trophy”?
Nico Müller: Not quite.
Robin Frijns: “Vorher” – “scho mol” – I don’t know.
Nico Müller: In German, it would be “getroffen”.
Robin Frijns: “Have we see each other before?”
Nico Müller: “Have we ever met before?”
Robin Frijns: Yeah, got it.
Nico Müller: What excuses have I used to skip some media and press appointments?
Robin Frijns: Oh, oh!
Nico Müller: Save me, Robin!
Robin Frijns: Millions, eh? No, you don’t really skip any. Well: “Sorry, I’m on holiday.”
Nico Müller: That’s not an excuse. It’s a fact. We have holidays, don’t we?
Robin Frijns: Let’s skip that one!
Nico Müller: What are my hobbies other than racing?
Robin Frijns: Karting. Skiing.
Nico Müller: Yeah, yeah.
Robin Frijns: Is there something else?
Nico Müller: Mountain biking.
Robin Frijns: Okay.
Nico Müller: Which race driver was my inspiration when I was younger?
Robin Frijns: Senna? It must be. It’s Senna for everyone, of course.
Nico Müller: What was the first race car I drove that was not a kart?
Robin Frijns: You did Formula Renault Two Litres.
Nico Müller: My first race in a single seater was in a Formula Renault Two Litre!
Nico Müller: Which is my favourite football team?
Robin Frijns: You’re not a football fan at all.
Nico Müller: Copy that.
Robin Frijns: So, you don’t have a favourite one?
Nico Müller: No.
Robin Frijns: Eh, I’m good at this!
Robin Frijns: All right, here we go. Questions for Nico: When is my birthday?
Nico Müller: Oh no.
Robin Frijns: I knew it. I knew it. I knew that you don’t know.
Nico Müller: The year is 1991.
Robin Frijns: That’s correct.
Nico Müller: That’s a third of a point.
Robin Frijns: Come on!
Nico Müller: I’m so bad with this.
Robin Frijns: Dates are also not my favourite point either. Which month?
Nico Müller: July?
Robin Frijns: It’s pretty close – it’s August.
Nico Müller: Okay – okay, okay, okay.
Robin Frijns: Lucky number seven.
Nico Müller: Oh, the 7th of August 1991.
Robin Frijns: Exactly. I don’t want you to hurt yourself too much.
Nico Müller: Thanks.
Robin Frijns: When was the last time that I was caught speeding?
Nico Müller: That must have been in January.
Robin Frijns: Yeah, I saw the flash. I’m still waiting for the ticket.
Robin Frijns: Try to say my surname correctly.
Nico Müller: Freiiins – Freiiins – Freiiiiiins.
Robin Frijns: No!
Nico Müller: Freiiins.
Robin Frijns: It’s Freihens.
Nico Müller: Hey! That’s what I’m saying.
Robin Frijns: No, it’s different.
Nico Müller: Freijens.
Robin Frijns: It’s Freihens.
Nico Müller: Freijens, Freijens.
Robin Frijns: Eh, anyway, everyone is struggling with this. It’s not Vrijinski, okay? Did I make that clear?
Robin Frijns: What excuses have I used to skip some media/press appointments?
Nico Müller: You like to stay in bed. So, if you don’t find an excuse, you just sleep in. And then say: “Oh, I forgot about that.”
Robin Frijns: Which doesn’t happen often, but sometimes it does.
Robin Frijns: What are my hobbies other than racing?
Nico Müller: Sleeping, that’s number one.
Robin Frijns: Is that a hobby?
Nico Müller: For sure it is. If you do it more than ten hours a day, it’s a hobby. Sleeping.
Robin Frijns: Then it’s a hobby.
Nico Müller: Then, drinking coffee in the afternoon. It must be a nice cappuccino in your favourite coffee shop in Maastricht.
Robin Frijns: That’s completely right.
Nico Müller: What else you do? I think you also like to go skiing.
Robin Frijns: I tried last winter, but …
Robin Frijns: Which race driver was my inspiration when I was younger?
Nico Müller: Senna.
Robin Frijns: Yeah! That’s not a question, is it?
Robin Frijns: What was the first race car I drove that was not a kart?
Nico Müller: It was a Formula BMW. You raced in Formula BMW and you won the championship.
Robin Frijns: That’s my boy. Yeah, true!
Robin Frijns: Which team is my favourite football team?
Nico Müller: Oh, oh!
Robin Frijns: I said it a few days ago.
Nico Müller: PSV (Eindhoven).
Robin Frijns: That’s like the worst enemy!
Nico Müller: Ajax (Amsterdam).
Robin Frijns: PSV and Ajax don’t really go together. Ajax and PSV is like black and white.
Nico Müller: Those are the two that I could think of off the top of my head.
Robin Frijns: And Feyenoord (Rotterdam). But it’s Ajax, I’m definitely an Ajax fan.
Nico Müller: Okay.

JAMIE GREEN AND RENÉ RAST
Jamie Green: I live in England now. Where did I live before that?
René Rast: Monaco. That’s easy.
Jamie Green: How many kids do I have?
René Rast: Three kids.
Jamie Green: And what are their names?
René Rast: William, Georgiana and Zachary.
Jamie Green: Yeah, well done! Very good. I am impressed.
Jamie Green: Language test: What is the German word for “making something worse whilst trying to fix it”?
René Rast: “Verschlimmbessern.”
Jamie Green: Sounds good to me.
Jamie Green: What excuses have I used to skip press/media appointments?
René Rast: Probably, because your tea was not ready.
Jamie Green: Haha.
René Rast: It took five minutes longer. So, you could not make it on time.
Jamie Green: That would be my priority, definitely.
Jamie Green: What are my hobbies other than racing?
René Rast: Cycling is on top.
Jamie Green: Yeah.
René Rast: Then I would say some gym sessions.
Jamie Green: Yeah.
René Rast: And your family.
Jamie Green: Definitely, yeah. Very good!
Jamie Green: Which race driver – I’m not even sure myself with the answer – was my inspiration/hero, when I was younger?
René Rast: Maybe Damon Hill.
Jamie Green: Okay.
René Rast: Is he British?
Jamie Green: Yeah! Are you serious?
René Rast: I was not sure, if he is from there, or if he is Scottish or British.
Jamie Green: He is English. And his Dad was world champion as well.
René Rast: So, he was your idol?
Jamie Green: Actually, it was Schumacher, when I got into it. When I started karting, Schumacher was dominant. And even when Schumacher was racing against Hill and fighting to win the world championship, Schumacher was always a little bit better. And definitely more ruthless. So, I would say: Hill was a typical English gentleman. But, maybe a bit too nice to really win stuff.
Jamie Green: What was the first race car I drove that was not a kart?
René Rast: That’s hard to say. It could be anything.
Jamie Green: Come on!
René Rast: Formula Vauxhall?
Jamie Green: No, Formula Renault.
René Rast: Okay.
Jamie Green: Formula Renault UK. But actually, my first ever car was a Mini. When I was ten years old, I did Mini Stocks on oval tracks – even before karting. So maybe this is a tricky question.
Jamie Green: Which team is my favourite football team?
René Rast: Manchester.
Jamie Green: No!
René Rast: No? Not Manchester?
Jamie Green: No, it’s Leicester. I am from Leicester City. That’s it.
René Rast: First question for Jamie: What is the name of my child?
Jamie Green: I’m not sure. I just remember an English sounding name. Leon?
René Rast: Liam.
Jamie Green: Liam?
René Rast: Yeah.
Jamie Green: That was close.
René Rast: What’s the colour of my eyes?
Jamie Green: You’re wearing sunglasses. That’s not fair.
René Rast (takes off sunglasses): Does that help?
Jamie Green: I would say by guessing: green.
René Rast: No, they’re brown.
Jamie Green: Okay.
René Rast: It’s okay. I don’t even know the colour of my girlfriend’s eyes.
René Rast: Jamie, please guess the meaning of the German saying “Zu viele Köche verderben den Brei.”
Jamie Green: “Too many cooks spoil the broth.”
René Rast: That’s right.
Jamie Green: Cool. It’s the same as it is in English.
René Rast: What excuses have I used to skip some media/press appointments?
Jamie Green: Looking at data, because you’re obsessed with looking at data.
René Rast: True. True. That’s right.
René Rast: What are my hobbies other than racing?
Jamie Green: That’s a hard one, because I think you’re always racing, driving simulators or some kind of computer simulator at home.
René Rast: Yeah.
Jamie Green: Then, you also do a little bit of jogging.
René Rast: That’s right.
Jamie Green: And maybe Instagram.
René Rast: Yeah, social media, simulators, running – that’s it.
René Rast: Which race driver was my inspiration/hero when I was younger?
Jamie Green: That’s hard.
René Rast: I’m German.
Jamie Green: Younger than me. But, I would guess that it’s still Schumacher.
René Rast: Yes, it was him. I started karting at the age of five or six. And that was the time when he was moving up from Benetton to Ferrari.
René Rast: Which was the first race car I drove that was not a kart?
Jamie Green: Was it something like a Clio? No, you did Polo Cup.
René Rast: Before that, after karting, I did something else.
Jamie Green: Single seaters?
René Rast: Yes.
Jamie Green: Oh, I thought you were be a full-time saloon car driver.
René Rast: I did two years of single seaters.
Jamie Green: But, what you have done? There was something like Formula König. But, that was probably before your time.
René Rast: I did test in Formula König and then I raced two years in Formula BMW.
Jamie Green: Of course. The one with wings and a motorbike engine.
René Rast: Yeah, with a 150-horsepower motorbike engine.
Jamie Green: Where did you finish?
René Rast: Not within the top ten in the end. I guess 5th was my best race result in two years.
Jamie Green: So, formula cars didn’t suit you.
René Rast: Apparently not.
Jamie Green: Who became champion?
René Rast: Vettel.
Jamie Green: Was that in 2004? When I was doing the European Formula 3 Euro Series?
René Rast: Yeah, you and I raced at the same event then. I always watched Formula 3, saw you with your special helmet and when you became champion.
Jamie Green: Oh. I didn’t know you were doing Formula BMW.
René Rast: So, we are learning something from this now.
René Rast: What is my favourite football team?
Jamie Green: I don’t think you even like football.
René Rast: Correct. I never watched any football games. So, you are right.
Jamie Green: Good job.
René Rast: Very good.
