Although Max Verstappen has yet to return to the Formula One grid, the Red Bull racer is still competing in the virtual world, having won the online version of the Bathurst 12 Hours.
Max Verstappen has had a busy week; not only did the Dutchman assist in the unveiling of Red Bull’s 2022 Formula One car, but he also won another virtual racing event.
Over the weekend, Verstappen competed in the online edition of the 12 Hours of Bathurst for his regular outfit, Team Redline. Luke Bennett, the World Champion and teammate, ranked fifth for the race and promptly claimed the lead after only a few circuits.
From there, the team maintained their lead and won the race in style, driving a McLaren MP4-12C GT3 car.
Verstappen was satisfied with what he and Bennett had accomplished.
“It was nice to race,” the Red Bull driver told Verstappen.com.
“The car went great, just like last year even though we had a different car then. Our young protege Luke drove very solidly, which is nice to see.
“It is nice that together we managed to win this race for Team Redline.”
Verstappen will return to a real circuit rather than a virtual one in a matter of months, with the first pre-season test for the 2022 Formula 1 season taking place in Barcelona on February 23-25.
The campaign will resume one week later with the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 18-20, after which a second test will be held in Bahrain on March 10-12.
