The three-time champion said: “I’ve been speaking to Fernando about it. He’s said he would only want to do it again with me.
“So I said it would be really cool. The only thing is that for LeMans, it is the weight of the driver.
“I’m quite a heavy driver, so I’d need to find light team-mates to compensate. Fernando is quite light, so it would be quite good.
“I just need to find another one, so I need to have a look.”
Verstappen was also asked by fans whether he was interested in taking part in any other racing series outside of F1. While he did confirm that a move to IndyCar is not in his plans anytime soon, he did express an interest in MotoGP, Super GT and Super Formula.
If the 26-year-old was to compete, he would join the list of two other current F1 drivers that have taken part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The first was Nico Hulkenberg, who won in 2015 with Porsche in the LMP1 class.
The second is his desired team-mate, Alonso. The Spaniard has had great success in the event in the past, winning back-to-back races in 2018 and 2019, both with Toyota in the LMP1 class, alongside former F1 drivers Sebastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima.
