He’s an exceptional guy. The only problem is his name, which is practically impossible to pronounce for someone who doesn’t speak Polish. So everyone on the team calls him "Prezzemolo", which means parsley in Italian.


He owns a car dealership in Poland with his father and brother.


When he’s not travelling to races or away at retreats, he loves spending time with his wife and their three children (Oliver, Nikolaj and Wiktoria).
