Rubens Barrichello's Entire Post-Race Interview

Taken from the BBC's race coverage, this is a transcription of their post-race interview with disgruntled BrawnGP driver Rubens Barrichello:

Reporter: Where did it go wrong?

Rubens Barrichello: Well, I guess it's uh on the strategy, on the pit lane.  Uhm it was a good show from the team how to lose a race today.  For me it's um terrible upset with the way things gone because you know it uh... I did all I had to do.  I had to go first on the first corner and that's all I did.  And then uh and then uh they made me lose the race.  Basically.

Reporter: What can you do from a driver's point of view?  Will you sit down and talk about this because it's not the first time it's seem to have happened.

RB: I don't know.  I mean if uh you know if uh... If it is really what's going on, it's uh we're gonna end up losing both championships and thats uh that's even more terrible, so (clears throat) I feel sorry for myself.  I feel sorry for the team.  Uhhhh... to be very honest with you, I wish I can get on the plane and go back home right now.  I don't want to talk to anybody in the team because I don't wanna understand, it'll be a lot of 'blah blah blah blah blah' and I don't wanna hear that.

Reporter: Are you saying the team are definitely favoring Jensen?

RB: No, I'm not saying that, I'm saying that there was a good show how to lose a race today.  I'm not saying that they favor anyone.

Reporter: Thank you.

The "I feel sorry for the team" part of that does tend to make him seem a bit less of a jerk.

I guess it's easy to stick your foot in your mouth when someone shoves a mic in your face and you can't really respond by saying "I don't want to talk right now."

2 Man, do none of these people watch any football? Or even NASCAR?

3 Sources other than PlanetF1 whitewashed it a bit by omitting "I don't wanna understand", or they were given a whitewashed transcript by BBC. Curiously, Motorsport.com issued a correction, and it _still_ lacks it. Second correction please?
