Verstappen reveals dream venue for place on F1 race calendar

Max Verstappen is a fan of old-school, permanent Formula 1 tracks - and the three-time World Champion has named a circuit that he would like to see included on the calendar.

Max Verstappen has revealed which track he would like to see on the Formula 1 schedule going forward.

The three-time World Champion named Mugello in Italy, a track owned by Ferrari.

Mugello is primarily used for MotoGP racing but F1 ventured to the circuit in 2020 during the season impacted by Covid-19.

“For me, Mugello,” Verstappen said on the Talking Bull podcast when asked to choose one race to add to the calendar.

“[Because of the] track layout. There are so many fast corners and in an F1 car, it’s so nice.”

At the 2020 race around the Mugello Circuit, the Grand Prix was won by Lewis Hamilton, with Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas taking second place.

Verstappen retired on the opening lap of the race after being involved in a multi-car collision.

Verstappen's mindset for 2024

Verstappen enjoyed a highly dominant campaign, triumphing at 19 out of the 22 races en route to his third World Championship.

The Dutchman is the favourite to succeed in the title fight again next year amid Red Bull's strong run of form.

When asked if he will change his approach for the 2024 campaign, Verstappen said: “Every year is a little bit different.

“That also depends, of course, how good the car is going to be. But I think you also just rely a lot on your experience.

“I mean, you've experienced already a lot in your career and in F1 and you know that if you want to fight for a championship, the most important thing is the car.

“But besides that, your performances need to be very consistent and that's something that you have to try and achieve again.

“Every single year it's a new challenge, to try and do that.”
