Yes, the cars will never roar like his Ferrari, but the weight of F1 expectancy is off his shoulders - and he believes he can now flourish."There is a lot less pressure," he says. "When you're off the F1 ladder, you can sit back and realise that this is a very privileged position to be in; you're paid to race around the world."Yes, it's not nice knowing you didn't quite make it to Formula One, but I have to say, being here is a great environment so far."Even if I don't get to Formula One and I just progress in this championship, I would be very, very happy, so that's the aim."But does he have any regrets about his past?
