"at some point, it was a bit boring," said Max Verstappen. In this case, the Sim-Racing makes him actually a lot of fun. However, because of the forced break of the formula 1 took in the corona of a crisis for weeks, lost the low countries, the joy of the virtual racing. "I am delighted that we can finally go back to doing what we love," he says in Spielberg.
Verstappen makes, despite the long Pause, then a strong impression, is, according to his Red Bull team chief Christian Horner in incredible shape. "Although that makes no difference, but it is always nice to feel so fit," says Verstappen to do so. "But I had never problems with the car, was already fit."
to Him it is now quite out, "how good is our package works," the formula-1-driver. "Hopefully a couple of wins from the get go."No fear of a "cold-start"
That he must lie down in the opening round in Spielberg a "cold start" without a prior test drive, the irritated verse does not fall, although some of its competitors have this Roll in advance. He himself is not attributed with "zero" disadvantages and says: "I believe that it makes a big difference."
driving practice is "always helpful," the costs and Benefits would have been in his case, but in no relation to each other, explains Verstappen. He has therefore set himself neither in the Simulator of his team, the Red Bull test day at Silverstone denied.

The experience to move to the RB16, was still fresh in his head, though, since the winter tests in Barcelona are the months elapsed. "Since then, we had a longer break than usual, but the bike does not drive you also not so easy when you were a year in the saddle," says Verstappen. "I don't expect any big trouble."
Just a little something he'd like in a different way: "On the COVID-19-Test I am pleased. It's not particularly pleasant, if you pushed a rod in the nose, but of course it is necessary," says Verstappen. "We cannot change what is happening in the world, but only in the best possible way to deal with it."
