"I spent two years in the Formula 1 world, but I never really felt appreciated for who I was", says Frijns in an interview with RTL GP. "I never got the chance in Formula 1 because it was too political."
"You really have to fight for a place, but it has to be fair", continues Frijns. "But it never went like that in Formula 1. I always compare it to football. If you go from Ajax to Barcelona, but you sit on the bench for two years. What's in it for you?"
Frijns wanted to race again
"I did tests for two years, so I sat on the bench, but I just wanted to race", says Frijns. There was nothing the Dutchman would rather do than start racing again. "That's why I went back to drive GT's with Audi. That's how I got to where I am now. Doing DTM and Formula E together, not many people can say that."
