Marcus Thunder: When I'm at home, it's the bloody bird that's found itself a home outside my window!
Q: If you could banish one thing from your life - for the rest of your life - what would that be?
MT: Losing. (laughs) No, it'd have to be illness. So no-one I ever cared about were to ever get seriously ill.
Q: What’s been your most valuable ‘life’ lesson?
MT: Everything happens for a reason.
Q: What do you admire?
MT: I admire a lot, skills mostly I suppose. Like rally drivers, what they do is insane!
Q: If you could give your younger self some advice what would it be?
MT: To ignore idiots. There are always people who try and stand in your way, or just make life a nuisance for you. I know it's hard, but ignore them, you'll end up in a better place. You don't need people like that.
Q: If your racing career ended after this season what would you do with the rest of your life?
MT: Wow, what a horrific thought, I'm only 19! Um, I have no idea. I'd probably have to find a job somewhere else in motor-racing, it's in my blood. But thankfully I'm already signed to Downton next season, so I'm all right. (laughs)
Q: What animal would you most like to be?
MT: A cheetah, because they're quick.
Q: What is more important in life than winning?
MT: There's something more important than winning? (laughs) I'd have to say good health, and having good people around you. Enjoying life, a few things, but winning is good as well!
Q: What would you spend your last dollar on?
MT: I don't know as I'd spend it, I'd save it or invest it, so then I had more money.
Q: What is your greatest weakness?
MT: I wear my heart on my sleeve, it can be pain, but also a blessing.
Q: What is your favourite smell?
MT: Fresh rain!
Q: What’s your ultimate comfort food?
MT: Chocolate. Always chocolate.
Q: What’s the first thing you do when you get home after a race?
MT: Relax. I like to have a go on the playstation actually, or read a book. Whatever I'm in the mood for. If I've been away for a long time I'll also ask mum to cook me a decent roast dinner!
Q: What scares you?
MT: How long have you got? (laughs) Spiders, snakes, wasps, bees, heights - no, falling - um, anything that can hurt me really! Oh, and dog's, I'm not fond of dogs. When I was little - about five, so very little - an enormous one jumped up at me. I've been nervous of them since.
Q: When were you happiest?
MT: When Bradley called to tell me I had a race seat. Obviously I was devastated to learn the circumstances - I get on really well with Scott and he's been really helpful - but I was over the moon to find out I'd be racing!
Q: What’s the best advice you have been given?
MT: When one door closes another one opens.
Q: If you had to stay in one place for the rest of your life, where would it be?
MT: Probably England, in the same town and house I've lived my whole life! Away from England, Majorca. I love the island and have been there on holiday every year I can remember!
