Belgian GP: Our Saturday F2 Presser


Sergio’s F2 presser from the Feature Race.

In order of appearance:

  1. Yuki Tsunoda (Carlin)
  2. Nikita Mazepin (Hitech)
  3. Mick Schumacher (PREMA)

SA: A question to all the podium finishers – will you be happy to one day become driver stewards and have to judge penalties?

NM: I think it’s a great job for ex-drivers. Like I said before, I have huge respect for my competitors, driver stewards and people who sort of make this sport be possible for us drivers to race. I think it will be nice to try that job one day because like I’ve learned in many life situations you very often see things from your perspective and then when you’re getting somebody else to choose a sanction it feels different, so it’s very easy to criticize at times. But it will be a nice experience for sure.

YT: Umm, one day maybe. But I’m not good at that, so I don’t know, I’m not sure I can do this job. I mean it’s interesting to be a driver steward, how they make every race good, everything that they’re doing, it’s interesting and impressive. Also, I have a lot of respect for the stewards so maybe one day I wanna do it, yeah.

MS: I think they have a very interesting job, difficult one I think. None of us are probably now currently in the position to judge things right or wrong. Obviously everyone has their own perspectives and we’re only humans so everybody takes their own decisions. If you want something from me, to be honest I don’t think so, I probably prefer driving and sitting behind (better up front!) and watching people drive. But yeah, I think that everybody should do what they enjoy doing.
