US GP: Inside the drivers’ briefing

US GP: Inside the drivers’ briefing

A candid look inside the driver briefing room from the US GP.

It’s time to step inside another F1 drivers’ briefing!

After a tense exchange in Japan, all 20 drivers once again sat in front of FIA race director Charlie Whiting to discuss their concerns and thoughts following Friday’s practice sessions at the United States GP.

On the agenda this week was a query from Max Verstappen’s about why the painted white lines were slippery at the Austin track, as well as Esteban Ocon’s concern about standing water.

But the main highlight of the video on this occasion is the exchange between Felipe Massa and Sergio Perez.

After Massa accused Perez of blocking his Williams team-mate Lance Stroll in Suzuka qualifying, the Mexican replied: “What are you, his father?”

Cue laughter from around the room…
