Todt suggests Verstappen becomes a steward during his FIA public service

Written by  Dec 03, 2018

FIA president Jean Todt has recommended Max Verstappen become a race steward as part of his two days of public service.

The Dutchman was given the order after pushing Esteban Ocon in parc ferme following their collision on track in Brazil and two weeks later, Max admitted he still wasn't sure what it would entail.

“When you have these kinds of exposures, this kind of fame, it gives you also responsibilities,” the FIA president told Sky Sports.

“So it means that whatever your emotions you must be able to control them and to respect your supporters, to respect your word.

“If not you have some consequences. But I will say the consequences finally are quite small. Rightly so.

“What’ll it be? Honestly, nothing has been decided," Todt admitted. “But clearly it has to be something that will be supportive to the Formula 1 world, supportive to the racing world."

Given Verstappen is known for his outbursts at almost every stewards' decision against him, the former Ferrari boss believes it could benefit the Red Bull driver to get a new perspective.

“Maybe a contribution to work closer with some stewards or some officials during some training, during some education groups. We have different things which are going to happen next year," he said.

“Maybe participate in a group panel of stewards in another category of motorsport to put yourself in the other side and understand that it’s not always easy.

“I’m sure we’ll find some constructive programmes,” Todt concluded.
