If the captain took control from him the day before and the control takeover was for good reason, then I do not think that cockpit gradient would play a role here. Pressure to do it right yes, but unless I have missed it, there has been no information about the captainís personality contributing to a particularly high stress environment.
IMHO he got so hooked up with getting it right this time that he was finally overwhelmed, regardless of the guy sitting next to him.
