Podcast: Is Max Verstappen really set to walk away from F1?

RacingNews365.com journalists Michael Butterworth and Dieter Rencken join Balve Bains to discuss the key issues from F1 over the past week.

World Champion Max Verstappen caused a stir recently when he suggested that he may be prepared to walk away from F1 if he is dissatisfied with the direction the sport is taking. The Dutchman is known for his dislike of both Sprint events and an expanded calendar, both of which have been championed by F1's powerbrokers. Could Verstappen really leave F1 in the coming years? And what might he do instead? Joining host Balve Bains to discuss last week's F1 news are RacingNews365.com Asia Correspondent Michael Butterworth and Editorial Director Dieter Rencken. After several recent controversial decisions, what are the main challenges facing stewards in 21st century F1? With F1 chief Stefano Domenicali open to the idea of rotating Grands Prix as the calendar expands, is this a good idea? What sort of anecdotes and information might we find inside Guenther Steiner's tell-all account of his 2022 season? And a dramatic crash in a WEC support race and the tragic death of Craig Breen in a rallying accident bring the issue of safety into sharp focus. All this and more, on this episode of the RacingNews365.com podcast!
