Verstappen’s Dual Test at Imola F1 Weekend

Max Verstappen finds himself amidst a hectic schedule in Imola this weekend. Alongside the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, the Dutch driver is tasked with another demanding race.

As the F1 calendar returns to its usual setup at Imola, Verstappen faces the challenge of competing in two races within the span of a single weekend. Despite his known aversion to consecutive sprint events, the traditional format of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix awaits him.

Amidst driving for Red Bull, attending briefings, and fulfilling F1 media obligations, Verstappen must carve out time to participate in the virtual 24-hour race at Nurburgring. His dedication to sim racing, evident through his involvement with Team Redline, sees him regularly participating in major sim racing events.

This isn’t the first instance where Verstappen’s commitments have overlapped, yet it remains uncertain whether the triple-world champion will manage to honor his virtual racing commitments this particular weekend.

Leading the F1 drivers’ standings following six rounds of intense competition, Verstappen remains focused on extending his lead over teammate Sergio Perez, despite facing his first on-track defeat of the season at the Miami Grand Prix.
