"I liked it, but there was maybe too much talk from some other people. It was Ayrton I really wanted to hear from. I liked hearing his views, watching the on-board footage of him. I'm not really interested in what anyone else has to say. Because everyone has an opinion. The number of people I meet who say, ‘I knew Ayrton' or ‘I was this or that with Ayrton', and then you ask someone who really knew him and you find out they maybe brushed past him once or something.
"People are always trying to associate themselves with other people they think are doing something important. Whether it's just to be associated with them or if it's for their own glory. I just loved the way he carried himself, the problem situations he went through, the issues he had... some of them are very similar to what I go through."
The McLaren PR shoots me a pleading look.
