F1 may have taken a weekend off but Max Verstappen was back behind the wheel, albeit in the virtual world.
The two-time world champion joined the reigning Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup champion Diogo Pinto and Ole Steinbraten for the iRacing Nurburgring 24 hours.
The BMW Team Redline team he was driving for streamed a large portion of the race and Verstappen quickly became the star of the show, as he is pretty much everywhere right now.
Verstappen and his team-mates ended the 24 hour race in third as Mercedes-AMG claimed a one-two finish. The winning team partnered with Williams Esports while Urano Esports took second in conjunction with the German giants.
