I can't believe my eyes. He is looking frustrated, intimidated and extremely rattled. That is not the kind of thing he should be bringing to the press conferences.

He has a lead that is near insurmountable. Instead of looking so worn and beaten, he should just be maintaining the way he carried himself earlier. "Oracle is a formidable opponent, we don't take our lead for granted, each race requires 100% effort, and that will bring us success, we never assumed that Oracle would not win some races," etc.
