Just to add - there'd have been no need for the journalist's question at the end if he'd ready Shipov's comments on the Aronian game, where Nepo told Shipov exactly the same thing:

It's interesting to compare Nepomniachtchi's commentary with Shipov's commentary on the same game:

It looks as though Nepo might have thought up the tricky queen manoeuvres at the board (...Qa4, ...Qb5). He missed Giri's chances with d5, or Be3 at some stages, but optimism is definitely a good thing in a chess player, on the whole!
