Bättig is also inspired by a girl in 2018 on the kart track in Wohlen (AG). On this spring day, Chiara grabbed it right away; "I felt it immediately - karting was what made my heart beat faster. I didn't just get my first racing kart; I had to earn it with small jobs over months. My family supported me from the beginning: it was also for them Karting is something completely new. I competed in all the races with used equipment, a limited budget, an engine that should have been overhauled twice and my family as mechanics - who are not mechanics - but I was still able to achieve top performances in the last four years and prove that nothing can faze me that easily and that I'm constantly pursuing my goals."
Even as a little girl I was always on the move, curious and loved speed. I always wanted to win, even at food,' she says, laughing.
Then later also with skiing, snowboarding and wakeboarding, cycling and football games, where Bättig partly made it into support programs. 'In the school and club competitions I was almost always the best of my year, and I showed it to everyone in swimming, including the boys,' she says proudly.
Bättig was also one of the best U8 girls in Switzerland in chess and was able to play the piano at a very early age.
Languages are also in her blood. In addition to German, she speaks fluent English, French at a high level and she has discovered Italian and is practicing diligently.
Bättig is a motivated, bright, positive, sociable and thirsty fighter. She knows that nothing comes from nothing.
