Verstappen warns against scrapping F1 practice

World champion Max Verstappen has warned F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali not to tinker too hard with Formula 1’s basic race weekend format. Prior to the Australian GP weekend, Domenicali said he was pushing to eliminate as many practice sessions as possible from the existing schedule. “No practice would be too little,” said George Russell, a director of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association. Pierre Gasly agrees that there is “no need from a driving point of view” to have so many practice sessions. “I think one, two maximum, is more than enough or us,” said the Frenchman. “It’s no secret – I’m not a fan of sprint weekends,” he said. “Well, if we do this many races, maybe you can cancel a practice session,” said the Red Bull driver.
