Women drivers ‘more afraid’ than men – Verstappen

Women drivers 'more afraid' than men - Verstappen
Max Verstappen has admitted he is sceptical that female drivers can compete head-to-head with men in formula one.

Bernie Ecclestone’s proposal that an all-women’s grand prix series be created has been controversial, with one commentator suggesting it is tantamount to “sexual apartheid”.

But 17-year-old Verstappen, who has made history this year as the youngest ever F1 driver and points-scorer, said he agrees with those who think a separate championship is the right answer for women.

“I think they lack something when it comes to physical strength,” he is quoted by De Telegraaf newspaper.

“And perhaps it is also true that some women are more easily afraid in a racing car,” the Belgian-born Dutchman added. (GMM)
