Video: Verstappen's Red Bull friend shines in Supercars battle

Although the Formula 1 season hasn't started yet, that doesn't mean there isn't great racing happening around the world. Shane von Gisbergen, who you might know from sim racing with Max Verstappen, put in a spectacular effort in a Supercars event in Australia.

Shane van Gisbergen stole the show during a recent Australian V8 Supercars event. The Red Bull-sponsored driver won the first two races of the season, but suffered a broken collarbone two weeks ago after crashing on his mountain bike.

However that didn't stop him during Friday's race as he took part despite having plates and screws in his shoulder. Although qualifying didn't go well, as he started in 17th, Van Gisbergen battled back before taking the chequered flag. However the real show was on the penultimate lap, as he battled with two of his competitors before climbing from fourth to second.

Watch the full video below, along with the full highlights of the race below that.
