Far from thinking about the good of the team, the victory of Checo Pérez did not go down well with Max Verstappen, who did everything to quickly take his pocket from his teammate in the Governor of Saudi Arabia. The fact that he remains the leader of the championship is precisely due to his last lap, although the difference with respect to the Mexican is only one point.
From here, the moment of the third day is to be held next weekend, but while waiting for the appointment in Australia, the Dutch driver has found another way to entertain himself. This Friday it was announced that Max Verstappen will participate in the endurance race that will keep him half a day outside of F1, the 12 Hours of Sebring, a virtual competition that will take place in Simracing and in which he will represent Team Redline.
It’s known two-time world champion He is a fan of simulations, although not everyone knows that he has won the Sebring series in a decent environment. The competition will take place through the iRacing simulator, which has a large number of official competitions and allows the user to create their own competitions, in addition to a wide range of vehicles ranging from individual to NASCAR.
Given the number of hours of games that the drivers will have in front of the screen, the pairs are arranged to allow the rest of the nation and Alex Palou will be the partner of the men of Red Bull Racing. Note that to watch the race on the river, you will need to click on the Redline Team account. There, the event will start this Saturday at 6:30 am CDMX (9:30 am Argentina and Chile and 1:30 am Spain).
When his participation in the virtual event ends, Max Verstappen will refocus on the Formula 1 championship, in which he has a victory in Bahrain and a second place in Jeddah. This way he will arrive at the Australian Grand Prix with 44 points on the table, although he knows very well that what happens in the authorities is important for the development of the whole season.
To make things worse, his last memory at Circuit Albert Park is not good, because he could not retire to finish the race, which Charles Leclerc did in 2022. After Monegasque, Checo Pérez was born, who will be content. although the two Teutons were released on the third day.
