Max Smashes Lap Record
Max Verstappen has knocked another record, cutting a few tenths of the fastest time on the Zandvoort circuit…..
Max smashed an amazing time of 1m19.511s making him the fastest man around the circuit.
Max’s appearance was all part of the ‘Jumbo Race Days fan event’ where various Motorsport fans from around the Netherlands come to watch their favorite heroes race.
Max was understandable pleased with his time, but seemed to more be enjoying the fun day racing at the track outside of the all the competition of F1.
“It is super to be here and driving the Red Bull Racing RB8″, Verstappen revealed to his fans at the track.
“The V8 engine makes a nice sound, that always makes it extra special. It is a slightly different car that I am normally used to, but with a better sound, so that is also better to use here.”
“I know from my Formula 3 period that Zandvoort is a great circuit. There is way more grip now with the new tarmac. It is more comfortable to drive on, because there aren’t that many bumps anymore, that’s very positive.”
Max also agreed that he would love to finally see an F1 race in his own country.
“If it was up to me, we would have it here already, the Grand Prix”, Max continued.
“Of course, that would be very nice, but there is more to it, like a budget and the infrastructure. A lot needs to be done in order to be able to organize this.”
