"I quite like my own bed actually." Conversations with Jason Plato tend to go off-piste. But here, he's actually on-point. "I don't want to go around the world. Flying around the world is great when you're 28. But I don't want to live out of hotels. I like going home to my family."
Now let's really go off-piste. Slightly. Two of my colleagues like to consider motorsport 'what ifs?'. Suppositions dominate this world, we're all guilty of it - and it's an entertaining and harmless way to engage in them.
Anybody following the British Touring Car Championship over the last few years, watching Plato add another pole and another win to his ever-increasing all-time-best tallies, has probably considered the same question. What if Jason Plato wasn't here?
