TG: And yet you're famous for being the smoothest guy out there. For managing your tyres...
JB: I haven't been this year! In the last race I damaged my tyres quicker than my team-mate, for the first time ever. So there's definitely something weird going on. Someone's got to work it out in the end, we always do. There are some very clever people in F1. A lot of the teams now have people there specifically working on the tyres. We have Hiroshi who came from Bridgestone. We're slowly starting to work it out. But then you think you've worked it out, and you get to the next race and it's completely different. We have Monaco this weekend, which is super-soft, so I'm hoping it'll work. It has done in the past for me and the car.
