Here's the interview in Radio Cooperativa.cl. Just my humble opinion, but I think Nico needs to play Brasil whether he's tired or not. That part of the year is where he picks up his points. Without that, he's going to sink in the rankings.
Great to see how hard he's working. So proud of the pumpkin.
