The two-time defending Formula 1 champion Max Verstappen has recently shared a video on his YouTube giving fans a glimpse of his routine ahead of the race. In the 2023 season, Verstappen is once again leading the grid with three first-place and two second-place finishes in the first five races of the season.
Going back to the video posted on his YouTube channel, Verstappen is seen sitting in his room in the paddock with his trainer as he performs some reflex drills. He starts off by tapping the lights as they turn on before turning his attention to some neck exercises. The Red Bull driver then is doing some hand and neck stretches with rubber resistance bands and then changing his focus to ball juggling and constantly changing his hands in the process.
Verstappen was going through his routine while watching a World Endurance Championship race at Spa-Francorchamps. After this vital preparation, the Dutchman goes through into the paddock and greets his teammate Sergio Perez, team principal before going for his pre-race weigh-ins.
