People don't understand that it was maybe my biggest pleasure to drive an F1 car when it's wet.
I have no problem with the people who work hard to get success. But I think people are very jealous about success. I work very hard and they don't appreciate that.
You were not in control You had no visibility: maybe there was a car in front of you, maybe not.
It's like when people talk about driving F1 cars in the rain. I have absolutely no problem with it.
I always work the same way, starting from the beginning of the weekend, so I know at the beginning of the race, from all that I have analysed during the practice, whether I will win the race or not.
The people who criticise you will not be the ones taking care of your legs when you are in your wheelchair. People who never drove a car in these conditions, they just don't know.
It's not too good to have this attitude in F1. It could be a disadvantage.
One of my biggest problems this season was with the clutch at the start of the race. I hate to risk the car.
I have always had this mentality because I hated to break anything on the car.
I'm brave to say that I won't take this sort of risk.
Maybe I am not French, maybe I am from nowhere.
It's always better to speak the language of the team. Not only for the direct contact with everyone - sometimes it also helps you to understand the mentality of the people in the team a bit better.
You want to have fun but you also want to work well. Sometimes I was quite happy at Ferrari, because we would have fun, but then they could not stop having fun and go back to the real work.
Sometimes I think I could have got some better results if I had a different mentality; if I could have pushed hard and attacked. But then I would have had a good chance of making a mistake.
I don't like to go over curbs, because I don't want to be hard on the car.
