If you have God on your side, everything becomes clear.
And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.
I have no idols. I admire work, dedication and competence.
Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.
You will never know the feeling of a driver when winning a race. The helmet hides feelings that cannot be understood.
Money is a strange business. People who haven't got it aim it strongly. People who have are full of troubles.
I am not designed to come second or third. I am designed to win.
When you are fitted in a racing car and you race to win, second or third place is not enough.
Racing, competing, it's in my blood. It's part of me, it's part of my life; I have been doing it all my life and it stands out above everything else.
I don't know driving in another way which isn't risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other's.
I continuously go further and further learning about my own limitations, my body limitation, psychological limitations. It's a way of life for me.
Because in a split second, it's gone.
These things bring you to reality as to how fragile you are; at the same moment you are doing something that nobody else is able to do. The same moment that you are seen as the best, the fastest and somebody that cannot be touched, you are enormously fragile.
Wealthy men can't live in an island that is encircled by poverty. We all breathe the same air. We must give a chance to everyone, at least a basic chance.
It was like I was in a tunnel. Not only the tunnel under the hotel but the whole circuit was a tunnel. I was just going and going, more and more and more and more. I was way over the limit but still able to find even more.
You must take the compromise to win, or else nothing. That means: you race or you do not.
And suddenly I realised that I was no longer driving the car consciously. I was driving it by a kind of instinct, only I was in a different dimension.
Fear is exciting for me.
Because I believe in God and have faith in God, it doesn't mean I am immortal. It doesn't mean I am immune, as has been claimed. I am as scared as anyone of getting hurt, especially driving a Formula One car.
My biggest error? Something that is to happen yet.
