Max interview with Viaplay - "I'll be here until atleat 2028". Misc
So I just watched the post season interview Max did with Viaplay.
Here is the summary (just the points that were slightly interesting):
Max showed up in shorts and a white t-shirt.
They talked about Alonso, If he plans to be in F1 in his 40s too like him. "No, definitely not" he said immediately. By that time he would not be racing anymore, not in F1 atleast, because there are a lot of other things in life he wants to enjoy. He also complained that there are way too much races per season right now for him to enjoy F1 later on in life. He said he will be here for sure untill 2028, he will be 31 then, he will see what happens then he said.
He doesn't care to break any more records, it would be nice he says, he hopes to add more championships to his record, but if it ends here, he is satisfied. He said it's not a given to ever get another season like this again, with so many wins either. He just hopes they will keep having a car that can win races, that's what it's all about for him.
Asked about the drama in Brazil. He said he really doesn't care about the online hate for him and how intense people get on social nowadays, he doesn't let the hate towards him personally, affect him. He said those people arguing online have no clue what sort of stuff goes on behind closed doors in F1, and there's a lot going on. Apparently a lot of hate gets send to his family and girlfriend, that's what he doesn't like. He also said that he is a teamplayer. He said he and GP are very good in setting up the car, and that always gets copied by the other side of the garage, which he is happy to do, but doesn't have to. He wasn't asked for his reasons why he did what he did in Brazil, he said that if he explained, people wouldn't understand anyway.
Edit: forgot to mention this one
- During the Monza weekend Max had dinner with Nyck de Vries to give him some tips for the race. He told him to just call up Marko and ask for a spot on the team. Nyck said "what, seriously?". Max said "Yea, just call him and ask, he will appreciate that". So Nyck did, and look where he is now.
Pretty awful interview btw, the woman doing the interview didn't really deliver. Bad questions, interview didn't flow well at all. She would ask him stupid stuff like what he thought about Lewis his fashion show every weekend and such. You could clearly see he wasn't comfortable. The years before Olav Mol from Ziggo used to do the post season interviews with him, those were great as they have a genuine connection together.
