Generally I don't care about what people say. I have to be clear with myself. When everything goes well, people celebrate you, when you make mistakes people criticize you.
I don't care too much what happened in the past. I prefer to focus on what is coming next and I am really looking forward to it.
I don't care what other people think as long as I am happy. The day I die or retire, I have blown all my chances because I don't have the chance any more to change my image as an F1 driver.
Simply racing a Formula 1 car is an achievement.
Sometimes you need to press pause to let everything sink in.
You can't change what happened. But you can still change what will happen.
Teams like Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes are going to be very, very motivated to go for the titles.
If the boat started shaking, we stayed on course and didn't lose focus. That made the difference.
I remember my first test in F1. After five laps, I came back to the pits and tried to play it cool - 'Oh yeah, I'm fine, I'm on top of this' - but I was completely lost.
There are some things that you can fulfil with money, but at the end of the day these are not the things that make you happy. It is the small things that make life good.
At the end of your life, it's friendships, emotions and thoughts that you take with you, rather than what's in your bank account. So, even though people don't have a lot here, they are a lot richer in many ways and we can learn from that.
All these nice people saying I'm going to be world champion won't make me any faster, you have to believe it yourself.
We always kept believing in ourselves and our team and the car.
As a driver, your target is always to be with the most competitive team possible.
All in all it was a smooth race, the car was very well balanced. I'm very proud to be the first winner here in India.
