What is it that you cannot live without?

Music, of course.

What makes you angry most?

Disrespect and jealousy.

What are your weaknesses?

I tend to want everything perfect, planned and very organised and get nervous when they’re not.

Do you prefer women or cars?

Women, you can use a bicycle or your feet.

What would you never, ever buy and why not?

I don’t use the word never, as you never know! But if cash flow would be an issue, I’d definitely have a problem buying a private jet.
