Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula One driver Max Verstappen has joined the Team Redline sim racing team. Verstappen joins Team Redline’s already potent lineup that includes five time iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series champion Greger Huttu, Alexsi Uusi Jaakola (a two time winner in the 2015 iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series) and former iRacing Pro Series champion Richie Stanaway who is currently competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship with Aston Martin Racing and the GP2 Series with Status Grand Prix.
The inclusion of world-class “real world” racing talents like Stanaway and Verstappen on one of the world’s top sim racing teams underlines the sport’s growing presence in the mainstream motorsports scene.
“I’m happy and honoured to have Max onboard at Team Redline!” said team manager Atze Kerkhof, a top rated sim racer in his own right who has raced in Formula 3. “I’m looking forward to continue our sim battles like we did in the F3 last year.”
“I enjoy sim racing outside of Formula 1,” said Verstappen. “I’ve been working with Atze for a while already and of course with Team Redline and Fanatec I’ll be sharing the virtual track with the fastest simracers in the world which is a great test and the way I like it!”
