"I want to make it clear I am not trying to excuse Sebastian’s recent high-profile errors. He reacted poorly in Turkey after his collision with Mark. He made a silly mistake in Hungary when he fell too far behind the safety car. And he was clearly at fault in Belgium last weekend when he shunted Button out of the race. He lost control...
... I see a young man who is suffering from his first spell of growing pains. He is trying to stay calm and focused. He is trying not to let the criticism affect him, just as he didn’t let the praise go to his head...
