Stefano Domenicali reacts to F1 drivers' dissatisfaction with changes

Many F1 drivers have expressed their dissatisfaction with the changes that are being introduced in the F1. Obviously, they don't like what the F1 leaders are trying to do. Max Verstappen is one of the drivers who has expressed his displeasure many times.

Stefano Domenicali considers it 'selfishness' and believes F1 drivers should see the bigger picture. “I don’t want a society in which people cannot say what they want,” -Domenicali told the Daily Mail, as quoted by “But drivers sometimes need to remember that they are part of a broader picture.

We don’t need to be selfish. They are part of this sport and this business, and it grows because we are thinking bigger. "
The comfort zone is what we all strive for and love. Sometimes change brings excitement and a unique chance to make progress.

Domeniccali puts the accent on it. Young generations also like to see novelties. It seems that every sport brings with it a new audience, but it also becomes marketing. “Sometimes being out of our comfort zone is not easy, but we cannot be lazy or complacent.

We can review some of the specifics of the sprint weekend format at the end of the season once we have tried it out on the intended six occasions. We won't have sprints every weekend, either. But we have a new audience and need to provide value for money [in] every session, and not let everyone drive around in circles for the sole benefit of the engineers and drivers”.

Max Verstappen went so far as to emphasize that such changes force him not to continue his career after the end of the contract in 2028. Domeniccali reacted; “He said he loved the sport and what he was doing,” Domenicali said. “He is world champion and is fighting for a third title. He was born in a car and I would say he is likely to stay longer than me. It’s not a problem”.
