Max Verstappen and Helmut Marko represented Aston Martin Red Bull Racing during a broadcast of Sport am Sonntag, an Austrian sport talkshow on ORF. Max talked about how he is keeping busy whilst the Formula 1 season is postponed.

“Since returning from Australia, I’ve been at home. I’m training a lot and I spend a lot of time on my simulator. Here in Monaco, there is a lockdown as well. But things are opening up. You can do most things, as long as you wear a mask.”

Max is looking forward to the season starting. The current aim is to kick things off at the Red Bull Ring on July 5. “I love to drive races and hopefully I can jump in the car soon. I also like the track; it’s our home race and that’s a big motivation. As a team we’ve had a good car and strategy the last couple of years. And if we can make it all work, we can maybe win the race again.”

2020 is Max’ final chance to become the youngest world champion in the history of Formula 1. “It would be amazing and special to achieve that, but I want to win always, every race, every year. The car worked well during the winter tests in Barcelona, but we’ll have to wait and see. The team is motivated and wants to challenge for the title. I’m confident that we have a good package, together with Honda.”
