Verstappen reveals WEIRD thing he doesn't like

Max Verstappen is one of the most popular targets for brands looking to sponsor a Formula 1 driver, but any headphone brands might want to swerve him.

That's because Verstappen has unexpectedly revealed that listening to music is pretty much the last thing he wants to do during a race weekend or even when he is training - despite having sung an Elvis classic after winning the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

That's in stark contrast to many drivers on the grid, who have pre-race playlists, train while listening to music or in some cases even dive into a recording studio to lay down some work.

Speaking recently to Formule 1 magazine, he opened up on his general non-interest when it comes to listening to music.

He said: "Not much. I hardly ever listen to music. Not even for a race. I know other athletes do that, to relax or recharge. I personally don't have that need at all.

“I sometimes play music in the car when I have to go somewhere, but that's about it. No, not even during training or during boring, mind-numbing endurance runs.

“For example, I hate wearing earplugs when running. I find it terribly inconvenient to carry anything at all. I also take off bracelets or my watch. The only things I wear are my clothes, which seems sensible to me, haha.”
