標題: Injury risk from porpoising comparable to other sports – Verstappen

Max Verstappen says the injury risk from porpoising is comparable to what
competitors in other sports are exposed to.
Several Formula 1 drivers have said the poor ride they are suffering this
year, due to porpoising or the stiffness of their set-ups, has significantly
increased their discomfort inside the cars. Lewis Hamilton described the
Azerbaijan Grand Prix as the most painful he has ever endured.
However Verstappen pointed out injuries are commonplace in other sports and
believes F1 drivers should be willing to tolerate similar risks.
“There are a lot of sports out there where I think you damage your body in
general,” he said. “Once you retire from your career, you won’t be like
you were when you were 20, that’s simply how it is.
“Football players have problems with their knees, all sorts of injuries. Or
when you’re a Motocross rider or Moto GP rider, the amount of bones they’ve
broken in their body. You can always judge, ‘yeah is that the safest thing
to do?’ No, but we are willing to take risk, that’s our sport, that’s what
I love to do.”
Verstappen acknowledged the porpoising drivers have encountered is unpleasantbut pointed out some teams can control it better than others.
“For sure, the porpoising we have at the moment is not nice and I don’t
think is correct. But some teams are able to handle these things a lot betterthan others, so it is possible to get rid of it. So I don’t think we have to
overdramatise what is happening at the moment.”
However Hamilton insisted the safety of competitors must be the sport’s
“I cannot stress more how important health is for us,” he said. “I think we
’ve got an amazing sport here, but the safety has to be paramount, has to be
the most important thing.”
He said he “definitely feel like I’m a little bit shorter” after his
bruising race in Baku. “My discs are definitely not in the best shape,” he
added, “and that’s not good for longevity.
“There are things that we can do to improve that for the drivers here. We
want to arrive and do our job and put on a great show and race the safest andthere is no need for us to have any injuries.
“So I just think we just need to work closely with the FIA and not take it
lightly, which I don’t think they are, and continue to pursue.”
Daniel Ricciardo, who also complained about the punishing ride he suffered inBaku, revealed after Sunday’s Canadian Grand Prix a problem with his car had
exacerbated his discomfort during the previous race.
“After Baku I found that we had something broke, so that’s why my bouncing
was really bad,” he explained.
“It was better today,” he added. “Before turn eight there’s a few big
bumps, which by the end of the race start to get you a little but nothing
