Max Verstappen was a guest in the concluding press conference of the Bahrain test. In Bahrain, Verstappen will join the first press conference during a Grand Prix event in 2024. The three-time World Champion will be joined by Lewis Hamilton. The FIA confirmed the press conference schedule.

Verstappen will be joined at the press conference by the other two world champions on the F1 grid. Hamilton and Fernando Alonso are also present. A second press conference follows a day later, this time with some team bosses. Toto Wolff and Frederic Vasseur are the headline names. Christian Horner is not on the list. The Red Bull Racing team boss is set to learn on Tuesday or Wednesday whether he can stay on at the Austrian team.

Those attending the press conferences are always confirmed by the FIA. In the list, something stands out: Laurent Mekies is announced on behalf of Racing Bulls. The team have previously stated they are not called Racing Bulls (but Visa Cash App RB aka VCARB).
