F1 drivers clash with new race directors

After a smooth start, Formula 1’s new race directors are beginning to collide with the stars of the sport. Veteran correspondent Roger Benoit revealed in Blick newspaper that the drivers endured a particularly long pre-event briefing in Melbourne, in which the wearing of jewellery and fireproof underwear were discussed at length. “Since I’ve been here, it’s been the rule, so there’s nothing new,” said the Mercedes driver. “Some of the drivers were (wearing masks) but most of the FIA were not, which for me was uncomfortable,” said the seven time world champion. As for the drivers being told that they need to wear fireproof underwear under their suits, Pierre Gasly says he is looking forward to the next scrutineering checks.
