, he asserted he feels like "a different man." He told the media at the launch event:
"I feel like a different man, to be honest, I feel like physically, I am in the best shape I've ever been in and very much changed my training regime to sort of meet what I need to improve on and what I felt like was lacking most in the car last year, which I do believe was making a difference."
's new car - FW46, is supposed to be a significant change from the previous concept. According to the drivers, it will most probably require a different style of driving, which could be beneficial for the American.

"Finally having that break to actually do something about, you know, where I was physically and where I was mentally, it's just such a great opportunity for me to sort of reinvent myself and come back."
