Memo comments on his participation in Cars 2
"I want to thank Disney for this opportunity, I never though I would be doing this in my motorsport career, participating in a Hollywood, and Disney, obviously in a cars movie. I'm thrilled with the idea, Cars is one of my favorite movies and in its second film they've decided to invite some real driver to voice the characters, I think it's great, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Juan Pablo Montoya, Jeff Gordon, among many others. And to see my name in the list makes me feel very proud."
"I've always said that my job is one of the most entertaining in the world, at my 29 years I'm still playing cars every competition weekend. And now I'm playing with cars in Cars 2. I want to thank my sponsors, Telmex, Red bull, Armor All, Interprotección and Peugeot for their support."
