George Russell has dismissed Max Verstappen’s hints that he may quit F1 over the extended calendar, saying he is ‘whinging because he wants more money’.
Ahead of the British Grand Prix, F1 bosses announced the 2024 race schedule, featuring a record 24 races spanning from March 2 to December 8.
The Red Bull driver reacted negatively to the news, saying it was ‘too many races’.
The two-time world champion also said that while ‘more things will have to come together’ for him to decide whether to stay beyond the end of his contract with Red Bull in 2028, ‘these things are definitely not helping’.
