Max Verstappen has said that he felt 'comfortable' during the first run in Red Bull's new RB20 car.

The three-time world champion took the team's new challenger out onto the track in the car's first shakedown, before official pre-season testing got underway in Bahrain.

Like most teams have been doing over the last few days, the world champions wanted to give their car a run out before the televised testing event takes place for three days from February 21.

Red Bull's 2024 challenger has a lot to live up to following the success of what's been described as the 'most successful car in F1 history' by team principal Christian Horner, after it claimed 21 of the possible 22 race victories last season, decimating the opposition.

Verstappen was able to break multiple records on his way to a third successive world championship title in 2023.

Now, the Dutchman has given his first thoughts on the new challenger, despite driving it around on a 'rainy day'.

"Just jumped out of the car, the first run in the RB20 today," he said in a post on the team's Instagram account.

"It was a bit rainy day unfortunately but I think the first feelings are good, I felt comfortable.

“That's the most important, a lot of things are checked as well now I'm just looking forward to drive in Bahrain and really start to understand the car a bit more."
