Verstappen to return to racing action next weekend

Max Verstappen will be the biggest name on a star-studded grid for the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual race.

Max Verstappen has been announced as part of the Team Redline driver line-up for next weekend's 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual. The sim event, which takes place on 15/16 January, has attracted some star names and teams to line up on the grid for the online edition of the world's most famous endurance race. Verstappen will partner up with Felix Rosenqvist, Max Benecke and Atze Herkhof in one of Redline's cars, with Oliver Rowland, Felipe Drugovich, Jeffrey Rietveld and Michal Smidl in the other. There are plenty of other big names taking part, too. Juan Pablo Montoya will be a LMVS guest star while IndyCar's Sage Karam will be racing with the Porsche eSports team. Alex Palou will race for Team Fordzilla, while Tom Dillmann, Louis Deletraz, Fabienne Wohlwend and Dani Juncadella will all be participating. Funnily for Verstappen, he'll be going up against two teams entered by the Red Bull Racing eSports team - one of which is led by Red Bull Academy driver Liam Lawson.
