What sort of a cop­ing mech­a­nism did you use on the Satur­day night of the Bri­tish Grand Prix last sea­son?

I didn’t have a cop­ing mech­a­nism, I ba­si­cally had to do what­ever I could to take my mind off things. If you think about things you dwell on them and stay in that place. So I had chicken fa­ji­tas and egg-fried rice – my favourite meal. My sis­ter came round with the two dogs and we went for a long walk over the elds. They were lthy af­ter­wards, so I put them in the bath and washed them. That was ther­a­peu­tic and fun. I watched some TV and spent some time talk­ing to my dad. Over time I’ve built a cop­ing mech­a­nism of get­ting over things quickly. In the past it would take days. Although that might not have been the case if I’d lost the cham­pi­onship!
