Last year my wife and I went to Laguna Seca for the US Grand Prix. My wife is a big supporter of Martin Cardenas but, at the time, she didn't know how Martin looked like.
Anyway, we were around the paddock and saw the M4 Suzuki team and I saw hopper there and I told my wife that was Martin. So he approached Hopper and in Spanish told him:
My Wife - May I take a picture with you?
Hopper made a funny face and said - oh, a picture, yes.
I then proceeded to take a the pic.
After the picture my wife, once again in Spanish, said - Thank you very much, you raced awesome today, I am glad you won.
Hopper made another funny face and just smiled.
Both went on with the day.
Anyway, later that day, we saw Martin Cardenas and I told my wife the prank I pulled on her, she was really but, she got over it when she talked with Martin, in Spanish of course.
After that day, I gained a new respect for Hopper, he was very cool with the crazy lady speaking to him in Spanish
