Verstappen to compete in Eseries
Formula 1 superstar Max Verstappen will race as a wildcard for Red Bull in the second round of the All Stars Eseries.
Verstappen will challenge the Supercars' best on tracks including Silverstone and Barcelona - famous circuits on the F1 calendar.
The youngest ever F1 race winner at just 16 said he was looking forward to the challenge.
“I’m looking forward to the race. It’s going to be a challenge as it’s not a car I’ve driven a lot on the sim, but they are pretty cool to watch in real life. We always race with Supercars in Melbourne so it’s going to be interesting to see how I get on against all the regular drivers. Verstappen said.
“I’ve tried the Supercar now a few times on iRacing and it’s a very tricky car to get right. I’m looking forward to racing alongside my mate Shane, or Pastor, as I call him – he’s a top shunter on the sim! (laughs) We race online a lot together so hopefully we can do well for Red Bull and it should be a bit of fun racing against the other V8 drivers as well.”
Week two of the Eseries begins at 5PM WST on Fox Sports.
