I don't think he's a *great* driver either - rather a very good one who's
spent a long time endurance racing and is having trouble shaking the 'don't
take any risks' philisophy that goes with that type of racing. Coupled with
a chunk of bad luck.
He actually used to be quite Verstappen-esque and it took quite a few years
for him to stop trying to win on the first lap.
