Lando Norris and Max Verstappen have come together to join forces for iRacing, functioning as teammates for iRacing’s Bathurst 12 Hour.
Both Verstappen and Norris are big iRacing fans, with Verstappen having already broken the iRacing world record.
While Verstappen’s e-racing interests were already known, Lando Norris’ interests have broken through largely because of his twitch channel, where he streams his own races.

Now, in the Bathurst 12 hour, the duo were seen racing together, and Lando Norris ‘sort of’ demolished Max Verstappen at the start, dropping those ‘F-bombs’ all the way too.

Max Verstappen is looking forward to the 2019 season, one in which he could maybe target the world title, provided Honda are able to give him a good enough engine.
Red Bull are confident of their chances this season, as Christian Horner feels that Honda have made quite good progress during the winter and could essentially end Mercedes domination in the years to come.
If that has to happen, Max Verstappen will play a major role, as the young Dutchman is probably the best driver on the circuit, along with Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.
“He has all the skills to take on Lewis or Sebastian or whoever it is,” said Horner.
“I don’t think he lacks anything to take those guys on and he’s probably the driver they fear the most.” he added.
Do you think Verstappen can give Vettel and Hamilton a run for their money this season?
