“He has matured in the last month to six weeks physically and mentally, and we saw that in the way he raced.

"We had belief that we had a squad good enough but when you've got the monkey on your back, it comes with a lot of pressure, especially getting to the end of the season with everyone talking about it," Stevens said.
