I'd like to say to all my fans out there, thanks for the support. And to all my doubters, thank you very much because you guys have also pushed me.

There are better starters than me but I'm a strong finisher.

A lot of legends, a lot of people, have come before me. But this is my time.

I don't think limits.

I've learned over the years that if you start thinking about the race, it stresses you out a little bit. I just try to relax and think about video games, what I'm gonna do after the race, what I'm gonna do just to chill. Stuff like that to relax a little before the race.

I know what I can do so it doesn't bother me what other people think or their opinion on the situation.

If I get to be a legend, I've achieved my goal.

Manners is the key thing. Say, for instance, when you're growing up, you're walking down the street, you've got to tell everybody good morning. Everybody. You can't pass one person.

I work hard, and I do good, and I'm going to enjoy myself. I'm not going to let you restrict me.

I like to have fun, just stay relaxed.

I've tried my hardest to bribe my chef, but my team have been clever and hired someone who not only is not bribeable but who chases me round the house and makes sure I eat what he's cooked, and he lays out my vitamin pills and supplements in front of me so I can't 'forget' to take them.

Yeah, I am lazy. There's no doubt about that.

For me, I'm focused on what I want to do. I know what I need to do to be a champion, so I'm working on it.

I remember once, actually the first race I ran, I fell.

When I was younger, I always wanted to impress, to be good for my country, to make them feel good, and sometimes that meant I didn't focus on myself enough. I learned I had to put myself first. And it's fine because I want for me the same thing that they want for me, which is to win.

I've worked hard over the years, I've been injured and I've worked hard through it, and I've made it.

All I have to do is to work on transition and technique.

I think my acceleration is very good. That's the key for me.

But anybody who steps into the lane beside you is the biggest competition because they made it to the finals.
