It will be the third and last sprint race of the season. Brazil will be the setting for this new format that seemed to have convinced everyone in Formula 1, but which has already found a detractor: the world leader, Max Verstappen.

The one at Red Bull is not convinced by the format because he assures that the only thing they are looking for is the excitement of having another exit: “I like the traditional more, and if you are in matched cars competing naturally, you don’t need to change anything.”

“The moment of emotion always comes at the start, because afterwards all you do is hold the tire until the end, especially the riders in front. It doesn’t matter which circuit you are on,” said the Dutchman.

Regarding his options in the championship, where he has a 19-point advantage over Lewis Hamilton, he does not specify how many victories will be necessary: ​​”Only the one who finishes in the highest wins, no matter how many times you have won this season. I try to enjoy myself. , but also win the championship. “

“Winning is the best, but, also, knowing that you can’t do it, it’s something that depresses you. When you’re in F1 you have to accept it, as I did when I started at Toro Rosso, although you always hope to make the leap one day to a team with the one you can beat. Now, I just enjoy the moment, “concluded the current world leader.

It should be remembered that in the two weekends that the sprint has been held so far, Silverstone and Monza, Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton had two fatal incidents in the subsequent race. What will happen in Interlagos?
