Heute (auf den Pressetagen) stand mir Stephen Odell für ein Interview zur Verfügung. Das Interview ist auf englisch und somit bekommt Ihr weitere Informationen zu seiner Person (unter dem Video) auch auf englisch.
Hey, das Interview war total locker und entspannt, hat richtig Spaß gemacht. Eine Probefahrt für den neuen Focus ST habe ich ihm auch schon herausgelockt, da bleibe ich am Ball.
