Toro Rosso prodigy Max Verstappen has made a major step into the world of sim racing after signing with the world famous sim racing team, Team Redline. The young Dutchman, who recorded his best finish in Formula One last weekend in Hungary with a 4th place finish, has joined the team "to practise and remain at the top of his game", and as such it is as of yet unclear whether he will actually race competitively for Redline. On the move, Verstappen was quoted as saying that he has "been working with Atze (Atze Kerkhof, Team Redline's Manager) for a while already and of course with Team Redline and Fanatec I'll be sharing the virtual track with the fastest simracers in the world." Meanwhile Kerkhof added that he and the team were "happy and honoured to have Max onboard at Team Redline" and that he was "looking forward to continue our sim battles like we did in the F3 last year." Team Redline has long been considered one of the finest sim racing outfits on the planet. Having competed in a variety of racing games dating back to Grand Prix Legends in 2000, Team Redline has since gone on dominate in almost every field and game they've competed in and have signed several high profile drivers such as Richie Stanaway, Nicky Catsburg and Kelvin Van Der Linde, whilst long time driver Gregor Huttu was recently in the news after becoming to first driver to take 50 wins in the iRacing World Championship. However with the signing of a current Formula One driver, and one tipped for future greatness in the sport, this could very well be a hugely important moment for the future of simracing as a whole.
