One of the most interesting things (~12:40)
[After explaining every button of the steering wheel: DRS, KERS, diff...]
Q: And on top of that you know how to drive well.
A: That's the least important part, normally [laughs]
The least important part?
That more or less, we all know how to do. Everyone who arrives to F1 has the necessary or demonstrated talent in lower series: karting, F3, Formula Nissan, in Gp2... everyone won things already and arrived to F1. But then when you arrive to F1 the truly complicated stuff arrives: for a day like this, full of events, things, etc. not to make your physical preparation decrease or make you lose concentration. And then the complicated electronics of an F1 car.
Lots of people think you are the best driver in F1. Do you think so?
No, I don't think [thinking noises] don't think that it's possible to evaluate who is the best or the worst. And you don't want to be the best either. I want, or I don't want, that there is any driver in the Canadian GP starting grid, who has prepared the race better than me, who trained better than me, who has seen all the data better than me, who knows the car better than me, or who has tactically prepared that race better than me. That is what I want to achieve, and maybe can say aloud, that I managed to do. But did I do this better or worse? I don't know.
That way of thinking is one of the keys for the success I think.
