“It’s about all drivers. Some people care more than others, others just do it, but I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that many of us do. They want to say something different than what everyone always asks, “Well, I’ll do my best next time and come back stronger.”
“I think fans want a slightly different person… there’s no other way. I should have learned faster and changed faster, but I didn’t. And I didn’t. I’m here.”
