I think that the comments relating to Stoner might be on to something. These days, at the top of Motorsport, these guys haven't done a days work, or made a decision for themselves in their lives. They live in bubbles, undoubtedly under pressure, but they come accross as joyless. We dream of their lifestyle and to do what they do for a living. Indeed, there are many that work at proper jobs just to get a taste of what they do, be it racing or trackdays.
There is an element of this in all professional sports. More grinding than gliding, and I suppose I don't understand that. What ever happened to enjoyment in sport? I've never won anything, but friends of mine who were sportsmen of some success ditched their sports when they stopped winning. They do nothing associated with their sports, whereas I still love the fact that I play and participate more than ever at 36. I guess that's partly why I'll never be a winner, as such, but I feel like I 'get it' more than they ever will.
