ITALY.- Max Verstappen He is a great connoisseur of Formula 1not only because of his title won in the 2021 season when he managed to beat Lewis Hamilton. But because he is used to going through the paddock with his father, joswho ran in the best drivers and in history and in the most recognized circuits: “It’s not the same anymore“, he highlighted.

The Dutchman spoke in the last hours about what it means that little by little the more traditional circuits are replaced. In his words, the street tracks that are entering the calendar are leaving aside the essence of Formula 1. In the last year Miami, Arabia and Las Vegas agreed their income to the category.

Currently of the 23 races on the calendar, six of them are on urban tracks (not counting Australia and Canada, which are semi-urban). That is why the Dutchman harshly criticized the category for these decisions. “It is clear that Formula 1 is trying to make money and make our sport even more popular.”.

But I think it’s just as important to keep the traditional circuits on the calendar so that we don’t just race on the street circuits in the cities, because our cars are not designed for street racing.“, highlighted the last world champion, although he also understands the business that the category has with these contracts.

“Formula 1, unfortunately, has to take into account the opinions of its shareholders. The world is no longer the same. The fun factor is more prominent, but that’s the way things are in today’s world.”, highlighted the Dutchman to close. It should be noted that the next date, post Imolawill run on the new street circuit of Miami.
