My contract is just for this year, but I have an option for next year. It is not signed at this moment, but I am only concentrating on this year. I don’t know exactly what I will do in the future.
I am not close to retirement. I still have a lot more that I can achieve. There are younger guys coming into F1, but I am not old and I’m not finished.
I am a professional. At the circuit I am calm. At home I am very different.
Experience has taught me that you have to improve all the time-little bit by little bit-and not keeping starting everything from new.
Eddie Jordan found me all the drives. If I am with Tyrrell today, it is because Eddie was there.
Am I calm all the time? That is a question to ask my mother. I am very happy in my home. I have a good family, that gives me something extra.
Although it’s only the beginning of the championship, I am very surprised at my capability.
I have never won a race, and that is my main disappointment – but you have to be positive.
I lived in England to learn English. When I went to England for the first time, it was like being on the Moon. I had no friends, I couldn’t speak the language. I was very isolated.
I decided to do the maximum to hold onto the lead for as long as possible. That is why I pushed so hard from the beginning. I was at 100 percent concentration.
It’s my job, but I think it is too much.
It wasn’t all frustration. I’ve had a lot of good times with Ferrari as well.
That was my dream, to drive for Ferrari, but I am not a kid any more. If Ferrari is the best team and if I get the chance to drive for Ferrari, it would be with pleasure.
To be honest, I am not happy about all the publicity.
When I go back to France now I spend all the my time with press and sponsors. I do not have a lot of time to spend at home with my family.
When you are in a good position you are sure to drive well and to be very concentrated in each corner.
You never really know how quick you are before you reach F1.
You tend to think that there is a big gap between F1 and everything else. F1 is where all the fantastic drivers are, so you just don’t know how good you are until you get there.
I must use Ferrari to the maximum. My priority is to get results. Then we will see what happens.
I think I will have a lot of opportunities in the future.
I was quite excited, but I was sure I wouldn’t win the race. I am a realist.
I will be better in Monte Carlo than I was in Phoenix. If I can’t win maybe I will lead 50 laps.
I’m not sure they understand everything about racing cars. I am not sure that this is wise.
I made my choice to be in Ferrari. It is not easy because it is important for a man to have satisfaction. And for me to get the satisfaction I want means getting results.
