My take on it is this.
If Michael said he made a mistake then it was HIS mistake.
That is all we can go on unless the team corrects it themselves afterwards.
In the last race it was obviously not a problem with the car he just drove a little too wide and hit the wet AstroTurf.
The frustration for him must surely come from the fact that he does these mistakes. In this case finishing only finishes 10 seconds behind Nico at this GP. Sets a faster lap than Nico. Has better race pace overall.
But Nico beat him with steady smart driving and most importantly no mistakes!
Michael of today next to being a driver is also a politician, who accepts his seniority "I should know better what that greenhorn will do"; he is also probably tired of going through the same nonsence as exposure early in his career, and it doesn't matter what facts are or were. If the gallery decides its his fault, its his fault then, and we do not need forensics. Thought process (in broadcast booths) replaces gathering of facts. I am not on board with it, and neither is probably he, but that's life we live as one happy family, and if he thinks this is how he can enjoy he return, it's fine with me too.
