Formula 1 world champion Max Verstappen has been enjoying his winter break away from the pressures of F1 by taking part in a virtual racing series, in which he has suffered mixed results.
The Dutchman claimed victory last weekend driving in an online version of the 24 hours of Daytona event, racing in a Mercedes car.
That particular race was a one-off though and he has recently been part of a sim racing venture for Team Redline, titled as 'Real Racers Never Quit' (RRNQ), and after a poor start, Verstappen has bounced back in the series.
The three-time world champion currently sits second in the overall standings after an earlier Daytona loss was followed up earlier this week by a win in both Mugello and Silverstone.
Verstappen's RRNQ progress
The 26-year-old claimed a thrilling win in Silverstone, despite a poor qualifying seeing him start down in fourth.
