Marlon Stockinger reveals crush on Anne Curtis
MANILA, Philippines - Filipino-Swiss race car champ Marlon Stockinger spent time with a select group of media from entertainment and sports on March 1 at the Peninsula Manila's Salon de Ning.
Stockinger, an ambassador of Globe Tattoo, spoke with the press about his journey towards his F1 dream. His parents Thomas and Egin Stockinger were also at the press conference.
He is the first South East Asian and Filipino race car driver to join the junior ranks of one of the most legendary Formula One teams — the Lotus F1 team. Because of this, his modeling (he is managed by Cal Carrie's Philippines) and show business plans need to be parked (pun intended).
When asked who his favorite Filipino actresses are, Stockinger revealed that his long-time crushes are, in fact, KC Concepcion and Anne Curtis.
"I have realized as a sports person that, at the end of the day, I have to be more open to the media and be more available (when they seek me out). It's a humbling experience because Pinoys are so supportive," said Stockinger.
His father Thomas told Rappler that Marlon will be heading to the south of France on April 2 for "proper F1 tests." - With reports from Dexter Lira and Jama Ramos/Rappler.com
