Verstappen and Red Bull launch new team

Max Verstappen has launched his own racing team in partnership with Red Bull.

Verstappen.com Racing will participate in motorsport events both virtually and in the real world.

The reigning F1 world champion, who has regularly made appearances for Team Redline in sim racing, has now partnered with the team to tackle the online racing world.

In the real world, Verstappen's father and former F1 driver Jos will drive for the team in the Belgian Rally Championship whilst Thierry Vermuelen will make his ADAC GT Masters debut with the team's support.

Red Bull is a founding partner of the team underlining the "faith and commitment" between each other after Verstappen signed a contract through to 2028 earlier this year.

"Racing has always been my biggest passion in life, from the moment I first stepped into a go-kart until today," said Verstappen. "Besides my own Formula 1 career, racing is what I dedicate most of my time to.

“I am truly happy that, with the Verstappen.com Racing team, I can share the love for racing with drivers and teams I feel closely connected to.

"Apart from the fun it brings me, I can also share my racing knowledge with them, which hopefully helps everybody to improve themselves."

Referring to the record F1 contract he signed through to 2028 earlier this year, the 24-year-old added: “After agreeing upon a long-term deal with Red Bull Racing earlier this year, I am very happy to be part of the Red Bull family for many years to come.

"The close partnership with Red Bull as a company is also reflected in the fact that they are supporting the Verstappen.com Racing team for the coming years, which makes me very proud. I can’t wait to get started and keep pushing flat out.”
