Red Bull driver Max Verstappen has warned that the Formula One drivers don’t want the F1 to become “artificial and fake” like “American wrestling.”

Drivers met with F1 bosses to discuss the plans for next season which include the possible introduction of reverse-grid sprint races to replace qualifying at some Venues.

“Us drivers had a meeting with the Formula 1 owners,” Verstappen told his official website. “We spoke a lot about what we want as drivers.

“Nothing has been decided but we don’t want something like American wrestling were everything is artificial and fake. We made clear that is not what we want. I think qualifying is good the way it is. I wouldn’t know how to change it.”
