And problem now with MS is that he's trying too hard to prove something when there is nothing to prove anymore...He achieved things that nobody else has done. Look what happens when he tries too hard..it ends in tears. He's making himself look really bad..
Yes, he tried too hard to shave another 100g off his gearbox, that's why it broke in Aus.
He tried too hard to not roll over and play dead, that's why Grosjean hit him.
He was rushing himself with the wheel gun, that's why the nut didn't go on properly.
He thought he could improve the DRS activation mechanism to give him another 100th, that's why it failed him in qually.
Seriously, he's made one mistake - Against the back of a dithering Senna on shot tyres, and he's only good for retirement, is trying too hard, is ruining his legacy, is slow compared to his team mate, etc?
He's already proven he deserves a place on the current grid, at most all you could question is if he deserves a top drive. Which is moot, seeing as he's not had one since coming back, thanks to Brackley being their usual quality selves.
