When endurance champion Neel Jani and alpine ski racer Aksel Lund Svindal get together to philosophize about their respective sports, the result is a rather inspiring and enlightening conversation – about the thrill of finding the line, about precision and heroic stories, and ultimately about what makes the timeless fascination of competition so amazing.
Neel Jani is one of the two regular drivers in the debut season of our TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team. In 2016, at the wheel of the Porsche 919 Hybrid, he was the overall Le Mans winner and FIA World Endurance Champion.
Aksel Lund Svindal is one of the most successful ski athletes today. The Norwegian alpine ski racer has won Olympic gold twice, been world champion five times and is a two-time overall World Cup winner. His fans call him “King of Speed”.
We spoke with the two on the sidelines of the GP Ice Race in Zell am See.
