IN HIS OWN WORDS:

(About his approach to racing in 2017): "The atmosphere (on the team), a lot of it is just me. I decided for myself that, 'I'm going to do this for me. I'm going to have fun. I’m going to drive to impress myself, not anybody else.' When you drive more relaxed, you do a better job."
