Max Verstappen does not think that Liberty Media should push for fundamental changes to be made to the circuits.

Max Verstappen has said that he does not think Liberty Media should push for fundamental changes to be made to the circuits.

A report is circulating that claims the sport's new owner thinks the racing would be better if there were more hairpins, wider tracks and a different asphalt type.

However, Red Bull driver Verstappen said in Abu Dhabi: "I think we have to focus first on the cars, not the tracks.

"I think this year compared to last year you can see it's more difficult to follow, so I think we first have to address that."

Amid Liberty's apparent push to make fundamental changes, F1 purist Sebastian Vettel said that his main wish is that "everybody calms down".

"Some races are boring, so what?" the Ferrari driver said.

"I don't think we need another new record for overtaking in every race. Overtaking should be an achievement and there's a difficult balance, but as I said, sometimes you should just relax and calm down and accept a boring race."

Vettel goes into the weekend with a 22-point lead over third-placed Valtteri Bottas.
