It means brave/fearless
Having big testicles is slang for being brave.

How much his work with a psychologist has helped I don't know.

He seems to attribute some of his resilience to it though.

I dunnoÖ. These young guys are not I would think, terribly self-aware. And why should they be at that age? My take, FWIW - is he was a bit angry at himself for not winning the championship in 2020. Everybody was telling him (based on 2019 results) that he had it in the bag. Thatís a fuck-load of pressure. From what he says he only had a few visits with the shrink, and you donít need to be a licensed therapist to know, nobody has a major psychological breakthrough in that short a period of time. Fabs just needed to have someone pat him on the back and tell him to not obsess over a disappointing year on wonky chassis.

Yeah how would any of us know.
He is going well and will need to cock up badly from here to miss out.

I thought his poise and passing were both phenomenal this past weekend.

He is maturing and whatever heís doing, itís working.

I did get the meaning, but why they refer to volkswagens and not lets say nissans or bmw's? What's so big about volkswagens?

That's a bloody good question.
I heard it in a movie once (the ugly truth) and it just always stuck with me.
Volkswagen did make the combi which was a pretty decent size car in its day so maybe that's why?
