F1 chose short track for entertainment says Verstappen

Max Verstappen has accused Formula 1 of chasing mere entertainment value by running this weekend’s race in Bahrain on the short ‘outer’ perimeter layout. “It’s not the most exciting track to drive,” Red Bull’s Verstappen said afterwards. “Especially in the second sector which is almost blind in the corners it is quite dangerous. He told De Telegraaf newspaper: “It seems as if Formula 1 wants to turn it into an entertainment show.”. McLaren’s Carlos Sainz agrees that qualifying in particular could be “dangerous” with 20 cars all on the super-short layout finding gaps and trying to draft. “We have to find a way to make sure it doesn’t get dangerous,” he said.
