- Formula 1 champion Verstappen has made it clear he will not start in Indianapolis for now: “I really appreciate what they’re doing. These drivers are great! I have great respect for their accomplishments, but that’s nothing to me.” , is quoted at “motorspeedweek.com”. “After such a long time in Formula 1, I don’t need to risk my life there or I might get a serious injury. It’s not worth it,” continued Verstappen, who has already celebrated 24 race victories in his F1 career so far.
