I don't have any trouble supporting him, despite his flaws. I remember watching Surfers Paradise in '93 and being blown away by the way this new kid was harassing world champ Nigel Mansell. It was incredible and it seems like he has never lost that thing he had on that day.
Watching the last video posted with all the various scenes shot by race fans... just incredible the joy people are getting from watching him, 20 years after that race in AUS! Sure, he's not perfect and none of us are. We can cringe now and then, and hope it continues to turn out OK. I love watching him drive and I wish him the best.
