It's hard to admit, but we all have our weaknesses, so we all use it.This can be seen in the example of Hamilton. When he wins, to keep him hard, but once he play, as Lewis tears of resentment. On the results slide downwards. When the same machines are the good pilots, the winner is the one who is stronger psychologically".
