Johnny Returned to racing after the accident which showed his dedication and commitment to succeed. When he returned racing he struggled to operate the brake pedal which began to compromise his lap times. Never the less he persisted through the difficult times not letting anything hold him back which ended up allowing him to progress to his full potential and leading to a Formula One career.
