F1: Sacred, Verstappen gives a huge rant

Published on November 5, 2022 at 8:35 p.m.

Holder of a Master’s degree in international law, I realized at the end of my university course that it was important to evolve in a field that we appreciate. Overnight, I decided to put an end to the dream of my parents, who saw me as a future lawyer, to live from my passion: sport. Since then, I have covered mercatos and sports news, trying to inform readers as well as possible.

Eventually, Formula 1 would like to abandon the use of tire warmers in order to save energy. A measure deemed dangerous by Max Versteppen. Recently crowned world champion for the second time in a row, the Dutch driver believes that this decision could cause accidents in the race.

The Formula 1 adapts to its times. In order to combat global warming, the FIA has decided to adopt certain measures such as abandoning the use of tire warmers in a few months. A way to save energy, but also to limit carbon emissions. A decision, which is not unanimous within the paddock. Some pilots, and not the least, have publicly opposed this measure. This is the case of Max Verstappen, now double world champion in Formula 1.

“Current F1 cars are very heavy”

In comments reported by F1 News, Max Verstappen considers that this measure will be difficult to put in place. «  Other disciplines do not use electric blankets but this is not F1 either, points out Max Verstappen. The current F1s are very heavy. I tried but it is practically impossible to drive them with tires that are not preheated said the pilot Red Bullwho shared his personal experience.

An impossible measure to put in place according to Verstappen

Verstappen believes that the single-seater Formula 1 is not suitable for this type of measurement.  » In my spare time, I happen to drive a GT3, and its tires naturally don’t have heated blankets, but these cars are much more forgiving and much easier to manage than our Formula 1 single-seaters. dropped Verstappenwhich issued a strong warning to the FIA.

“It could cause a very, very big accident”

For the world champion, this measure could cause serious accidents during the races. «  If we go a little too fast, with the power of a Formula 1 engine, it could cause a very, very big accident without the electric blankets  » dropped Verstappen. It remains to be seen whether the authorities will listen to the message sent by the Dutchman.
