Ayrton has this problem - he thinks that he can't kill himself.
When I drove for British teams... they called me The Tadpole because I was too small to be a frog.
I rely on Prost to negotiate the first corner and the rest of it.
For him it is just the beginning. He has his whole career still ahead and (winning the title so early) will make him stronger.
Three times before 1985, I just missed the title, so winning was a relief.
The real problem is that it (F1) is in a permanent state of conflict
I have had some problems because the French don't like people to have success, they don't like the number one.
I have no problem with the people who work hard to get success. But I think people are very jealous about success. I work very hard and they don't appreciate that.
It's always better to speak the language of the team. Not only for the direct contact with everyone - sometimes it also helps you to understand the mentality of the people in the team a bit better.
It's like when people talk about driving F1 cars in the rain. I have absolutely no problem with it.
People don't understand that it was maybe my biggest pleasure to drive an F1 car when it's wet.
The people who criticise you will not be the ones taking care of your legs when you are in your wheelchair. People who never drove a car in these conditions, they just don't know.
I like the mentality of the Americans. It's like when you talk about money.
In 1980 I finished three or four times in seventh place.
I was very interested in that. It is very important to have confidence as well as to build up experience.
