Verstappen chasing redemption at Daytona after Le Mans crash

Max Verstappen is returning to action this weekend, as he participates in the iRacing Daytona 24.

Max Verstappen will be racing again this weekend, as the 2021 F1 World Drivers' Champion takes part in the iRacing Daytona 24 – the online sim racing version of the Daytona 24 Hours.

Verstappen will be driving for his usual online squad, Team Redline, partnering up with Germany's Gianni Vecchio and the UK's Chris Lulham for the 24 hour endurance event.

The Dutch driver is well known for using online sim racing to keep sharp, and frequently takes part in events when his busy F1 schedule allows.

Verstappen is aiming to bounce back from a big disappointment last weekend, when he crashed out of the lead of the Le Mans 24 Hours Virtual.

The iRacing Daytona 24 kicks off at 14:00 on 22 January, with Team Redline and Verstappen's onboard footage being streamed live throughout.
