Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen has been invited by the FIA for the press conference for the 2018 Chinese Grand Prix, F1Today.net has learned. The international autosport federation is yet to confirm the other two drivers who will accompany the Dutchman.

Lewis Hamilton looks like a suitable candidate for one of the two remaining spots. The reigning world champion collided with Verstappen during the Bahrain Grand Prix and the Mercedes driver has accused his colleague of immature driving. Putting those two together for a press conference could cause some firework.

The FIA press conference in China on Thursday will start at 09.00 CET.

    • you left out "Verstappen vs. himself". As a fan, I really hope he can get the solid results together that he needs to show to be a true world championship contender. Sometimes I want him to be sneaky like a snake, not storming like a bull .... Even if his car isn't bringing him to the front of the grid during qualifying just yet.

      Kimi vs Ferrari should be fun to watch all season. Just no more serious accidents, thank you.

    The Kimi situation is something Im sceptical about - he's being abused in his position and if it is true that this is his last season, he should tell Ferrari where to stick it and drive for himself, not Vettel. Im damned sure he will be cooking agin in China, he has all the bad luck, none of the good luck. He's also a character, we don't have nearly enough of these in F1. Forza Kimi.

    • Kimi is fast this year. Looks like the 2018 Ferrair suits him better than Vettel. Hope to see a GP victory very soon!
