Off Season Preparation…to the Max!

How does one of Formula One’s most spectacular young talents prepare for the new season? With sim racing, of course!

Max Verstappen, Formula One’s young record breaker who’s shattered some of the sports most long standing records (youngest driver to ever lead a race, youngest driver to win a race…you name it!) is currently in his off season and the two-time 2017 race winner is using sim racing to get his speed fix until the new season gets going in March:

Relatable, isn’t it?
