‘It’s not really a race’: Max Verstappen slams F1 sprints ahead of the Grand Prix in Brazil insisting ‘not much happens’… despite his attempt to make it a hat-trick of victories at them this season at Interlagos

Max Verstappen has criticised F1’s dalliance with Saturday sprint races ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix. The two-time champion has won both of the dashes this season, going into this weekend’s prelude to race day at Interlagos. But Verstappen said they were more about damage limitation for himself, because they ‘aren’t really a race’. ‘Every time I do these [sprint] races, it’s about “don’t get damage, make sure you stay in the top three”, Verstappen said. Despite these successes, Verstappen said the extra race is not necessary, because of the brilliance of the full-length GPs on the Sunday. Probably you won’t risk it, so that’s not really a race.’.
