Reigning UIM F1H2o world champion, Shaun Torrente, gave his most frank interview yet to Norway’s Frode Sundsdal on a Facebook live question and session last night that lasted for just over an hour and a half.
Torrente answered questions from the viewers and some that were prepared by Powerboat Racing World earlier, which covered everything from the start of his racing career to his 2019 F1H20 world championship win in Sharjah last December.
The racer who lives in Florida explained for the first time the thought process behind his Abu Dhabi team decision the night before the final race of the 2019 season – Did they race with an engine that was giving trouble or change it and start last on the grid for the championship decider?
The internet is perfect for longform interviews and Sundsdal used the length of time available to really get inside the the head of a powerboat racing champion.
