The Brazilian Grand Prix is just around the corner and that means the drivers can get ready for the first press conference of the weekend. The format is known and Max Verstappen will sit next to Nicholas Latifi.

On Thursday prior to a Grand Prix weekend, there is always a press conference for the drivers. Each time two drivers are seated next to each other to answer questions of the different journalists. On Thursday this press conference starts at 4:30pm.

Fernando Alonso and Valtteri Bottas will be the first to speak during this press conference. Verstappen will appear later in the session. He will sit next to Nicholas Latifi, who he has complained about many times during practice. Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris are also paired up as former teammates, while Lewis Hamilton and Lance Stroll close the press conference.

On Friday there is a press conference for the team bosses at 4pm between the first free practice and the qualifying session. However, not all team bosses will be present at this press conference. First, we have Otmar Szafnauer (Aston Martin) and Andreas Seidl(McLaren), followed by Toyoharu Tanabe and Mario Isola speaking on behalf of Honda and Pirelli. Szafnauer’s press conference will be interesting after he was linked to a switch to Alpine this week.
