The flying Pierre Dupasquier

Pierre Dupasquier is a sprightly 66-year-old but the boss of Michelin Competition is not only a powerhouse when it comes to management - he is also remarkably fit. The former fighter pilot, Dupasquier has been with Michelin for 42 years, much of it as head of motorsport, wanted to see more of the new circuit in Bahrain and rather than driving around the 3.3-mile track Pierre decided to go on rollerskates, despite the fact that the temperature was up in the nineties.
