Compare his behaviour to what Michael Schumacher said about his loss in Japan over the weekend:
“For me, the drivers’ championship is over. There is no way I want to go to my last race hoping that the same thing will happen to my rival. I want to fight for the championship, not hope for somebody’s retirement. Maybe you could argue there is a very small last piece of hope but I don’t want to hope that. That is not the way I want to finish. It is no one’s fault, just circumstances. How boring life would be if it were always nice. To lose is part of life. I can live with it very well.”
That, to me, is the mark of a true champion.
