Max Verstappen has launched his own racing team in conjunction with Red Bull, encompassing all of the Dutchman's different ventures.

Verstappen.com Racing will bring together categories from both the virtual and real world, with Verstappen known to regularly compete in various online racing events.

Team Redline - the eSports outfit that Verstappen often competes for - will represent the new venture in digital events.

In the real world, Verstappen's father, Jos, is set to race for Verstappen.com Racing in the Belgian Rally Championship, and the team will also support Thierry Vermeulen in his debut at the ADAC GT Masters championship.

A Verstappen.com Racing x Red Bull logo will be displayed on the livery of both virtual and real world competitors.

Verstappen keen to share "racing knowledge"

Verstappen has spoken of his excitement about the new project, and admits that he hopes to share his experience with other racers.

"Racing has always been my biggest passion in life, from the moment I first stepped into a go-kart until today. Besides my own Formula 1 career, racing is what I dedicate most of my time to," the 2021 World Champion said on his website, Verstappen.com.

"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."

Verstappen is also glad to have Red Bull on board, having recently signed to remain with the outfit until the end of the 2028 F1 season.

"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," he explained.

"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."
