The Secret Life of Jarno Trulli

He’s Italian but he’s never driven for Ferrari; he’s scored 246.5 points over the course of his 14 year Formula One career; his first - and only - victory came at the 2004 Monaco Grand Prix; he has raised almost 670,000 Euros for Abruzzo since a devastating earthquake hit the region in April 2009; and he owns a vineyard. These are just some of the things you probably do know about Jarno Trulli. Now find out a few you don’t, with the help of the latest installment in our Secret Life series…

Q: What was the last book you read?
JT: It was one my wife gave me... quite a while ago.

Q: What is your favourite way to relax?

JT: I don’t really miss home as I know I’ll be back very soon.

Q: What was your worst buy?
JT: A lot of people think it’s bad, but I like it - it’s a Hummer.

Q: How do you take your coffee?
JT: I don’t drink coffee.
