Very interesting moment in the post-race conference

Got to watch the entire post-race press conference and somethig caught my attention massively. After Lewis was being bitter as usual and nagging about mechanics and reliability, by the end of the PC, Seb said he wanted to make a comment and went on about how Nico is a deserved champion and how great he’d been all year and how reliability is part of all this and sometimes it goes your way and sometimes it doesn’t and that it’s Nico’s day and you can’t take it away from him. Nico then turned and thanked him in German and Seb gave a strong and reassuring smile. I can’t describe how much I love this. Seb directly and at his own will without being asked about it chose to take to Nico’s defence and point it out himself. Comes to show a bit what he thinks of what’s been said about Nico by media and by Lewis. Also perhaps part of it was because he himself was over and over pulled down by people claiming he was an undeserving champion as well and it was all down to his car. He knows how it feels like to not be given your deserved credit. Seb obviously and directly chose to stand by Nico and Nico recognised it and thanked him for it and I absolutely loved it.

This was so long but idk it resonated with me so much and I’m so proud of both of my champions.
