I was a vegetarian for 24 years and 2 months, from the day I was born till 2008 when my physio and then teammate Bruno Senna convinced me it's better for me to have more protein.

My favourite non-sport subjects for reading or watching documentaries are politics and Indian history.

My biggest regret is that I didn't get a chance to fly on the Concorde before it was grounded. In some ways modern aviation is a rare example of how we've gone backward in engineering since the Concorde.

As told to Madhumitha Srinivasan
