At the beginning of each stage, I calm myself down. I have my own routine: I do a breathing exercise, then I clap five times, tense my body as much as I can, and sink down in the seat as far as I can. Then we lock hands and say ‘Let’s do this!’, as the stage looms closer. Fifteen seconds before the start, I engage first gear. Ten seconds – stage mode. Seven seconds – handbrake. Five seconds before start – launch control, full throttle and go. When you have a routine, you don’t get nervous,” concludes Fredrik.
