Trulli's career in his own words

By:
, Maurice Hamilton

Jarno Trulli lifts the lid on his relationships with Flavio Briatore and Eddie Jordan, frustrations at Toyota and many other untold stories in a chat with AUTOSPORT's sister publication F1 Racing

Jarno Trulli arrives for this interview looking fitter than ever. He's holidaying for a few weeks by the sea with his parents in Pescara, the town where he was born 39 years ago. Jarno's wife and two sons have also made the trip from their home in Lugano, just over the border in Switzerland. This is quality family time, yet work is never far away.

Trulli has cycled over to his vineyard, Podere Castorani, which sits in the foothills of the Abruzzo region, 25 miles west of Pescara. He bought it in 2001, and has since invested more than £10 million in it. The 32-hectare estate may officially be closed for the holiday but, in hard-working family fashion, Trulli's father turns up to unload a delivery that's just arrived.
