This weeks interview with Adrian Zaugg.

After winning the Bridgestone Cup in Karting, he impressed on a Formula BMW Scholarship Course, he was signed by Austrian energy drink company Red Bull in 2004, for their Red Bull Junior Team programme. For 2005, he moved up to Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0, winning one race. He continued briefly in the Eurocup for 2006, before moving up to the World Series by Renault, for Carlin Motorsport. In six races, he achieved one pole position.

For the 2006-07 season, he also made his A1 Grand Prix debut for Team South Africa at Zandvoort, the 2006-07 A1 Grand Prix of Nations, Netherlands. He qualified on pole position in his very first qualifying session, and went on to win the Sprint race, though he crashed out on the first lap of the Feature race.

His impressive outings in A1GP led to him being signed up to drive for Arden International for the 2007 GP2 Series, where he would achieve only four point-scoring finishes, on his way to eighteenth in the championship. Zaugg returned to the World Series by Renault for the 2009 season, as he secured a late drive with the Interwetten.com team. However, he parted company with the team after the Le Mans round, due to a lack of funds. Despite this, he finished fourteenth in the championship.

Zaugg returned to the wheel of a GP2-specification car, when he contested the third round of the 2009–10 GP2 Asia Series in Bahrain, replacing Dani Clos.
