“If someone wanted to call me, he did it. Based on this, I made the decision about his future, said the Mass. – I didn’t call anyone. I just waited and monitored the situation from mass media.
Then all happened very suddenly – just two days. I got the first text from Claire Williams, in which she asked if I agree to return to the team, to which I replied: “Look, we need to talk.”
She called me back immediately, we talked, and then I took a plane ticket to England, where we discussed not only my future, but the whole situation with Mercedes and Valtteri.
Making a decision, I just followed my heart, because I love racing. I have received many messages from fans and family, and have not seen any message with the text: “don’t do that””.
