The Renault rookie accepts that the tirade (from Briatore)was justified."My first grand prix was a disaster. The whole race was a bit of a mess and I'm going to try to forget it as quickly as possible," Kovalainen said in his BBC Sport column."It was a shame it happened on my debut. It would have been better to kick off my season with a better performance, but everything went wrong from the start to the end."My team boss Flavio Briatore did not mince his words afterwards, in private or public, but that's completely normal."Everyone was disappointed. I wasn't expecting anyone to say, "Well done", or "It's part of the learning curve.""I understand their frustration. I am more disappointed than anyone, but I'm not going to let my head go down and be sad about it."I have learned enough as a test driver to do a lot better job than I did in Melbourne but unfortunately there were too many mistakes that cost me time."
I like the way he´s coping with all this. Let´s hope Malaysia will be a lot better!
