Question referred

Is Article 6(1) of Regulation (EC) No 593/2008 1 on the law applicable to contractual obligations (Rome I) (‘the Rome I Regulation’) to be interpreted as meaning that the law of the country in which the consumer has his or her habitual residence is not applicable if the law applicable under Article 4 of the Rome I Regulation, the application of which the applicant seeks and which would be applicable if the applicant lacked consumer status, is more favourable to the applicant?
