“As a driver, you know what you need to feel good about the car and you really know how committed you can be on the weekends.

“Otherwise you will be upset, you will not feel good and it will hurt your performance. So you have to keep it exactly the same, the same procedure as other race weekends.

“But you should be able to say ‘no’ to certain promises because, at the end of the day, you’re here to drive and race because that’s what you live for and what you’re paid to do.”

Off-field events for Formula 1 drivers are set to be limited this year as the F1 2022 season will have the biggest race schedule in a calendar year. A total of 23 races will be held this year, which will strictly limit the holidays for racers.

Worstapen added that drivers often have to repeat the same answers over and over again because they are asked the same question in different TV interviews. Max therefore suggested that TV should follow group conferences.

“Instead of asking broadcasters two questions each, all of them basically, whatever, six, eight, 10 questions, only at once, and they can all broadcast it,” he said.

“I think it’s more efficient and beautiful for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you have 20 mics lined up from different companies. You get a lot more from drivers. “
