I did a triathlon for [charity] Help for Heroes and it was quite cold in the water. People were wearing wetsuits, I'd left mine in the hotel so I decided to try to squeeze into my girlfriend's… which felt OK until I got into the water and then it tightened up in… certain areas. So that was the end of my race. I had a panic attack in the water! So yeah, good and bad memories but it was a great event and I think everyone had fun and we raised a lot of money for Help for Heroes. In the end it was fun but the most important thing is what we raised.
Your aims for the second half of the season? How do you see the second half of the season? People are talking about perhaps driver orders that you'll help Lewis…
I'm I think 40 points behind Lewis, so you'd say that I'm going to give up on fighting for the Championship just because I'm 40 points behind my team-mate? Lewis is 40 points behind Fernando and I still think he thinks he's got a very good chance of winning this Championship, so no, we go racing as always and try to do the best job we can. The last two races for us before the break were very good: I had a second in Hockenheim and obviously Lewis's win in Hungary – so we come here positive we can get a very good result. So, no, that's definitely not the situation and we want to get as many points for ourselves but also for the team. The team championship, the Constructors' Championship is very, very important to McLaren
and it's something that we're going to work on as much as we can.
