« In motorsport there is less chaos »

“Winning Paris-Roubaix for the third or fourth time didn’t give me the same thrill as my first victories as a rookie (beginner, editor’s note) in motorsport. A massive sprint is an explosion of hormones. In a chaotic finale, you find your way, you win and you raise your arms. Bam! In motorsport there is less chaos. I have more control. You stay hyper focused and never exceed the limit , even when you are in a direct duel with another car. But once the finish line is crossed, the joy is immense « , added Boonen.
