The F1 outcast who became a surprise star in 2018

One of the stars of the 2018 Formula 1 season is a man not even on the grid anymore, but who has revelled in a surprise new role after being abruptly jettisoned by his team last year

"I wasn't fussed about racing this year at all. I lost quite a lot of passion for racing because of the way the whole atmosphere was. I stopped enjoying what I was doing. It soured my feeling for driving, my desire. Which was a shame, because it was all I'd grown up wanting to do."

Elite competition is meant to be difficult, but sapping someone's enthusiasm and love for the sport that enchanted them as a child is a sad and harsh consequence when it goes badly wrong.
