Similarly, the Mexican pilot spoke about what it means to be an inspiration for the country’s youth:
“I think I influence Mexicans, I never grew up with a countryman in F1thinking about that was impossible, in Mexico It was something totally unknown, it was more popular IndyCar. I think all Mexicans now see it more closely and I think it is something that has helped Mexico. I hope that soon we can have some other Mexican pilot, hopefully another 30 years will not go by without a Mexican when I retire, ”he declared.
