'I said to Nigel, 'If we bring her back, you know it's like when you see a picture when you're away and you take it home and you think, why did I buy that?'" said Webber in a rather cringeworthy analogy. 'I thought: we'll get her back, it'll be fine, but then what do we do with her?" Read more here.
