Before the first free practice session of the Spanish Grand Prix, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen had planned a special baby shower for his teammate Sergio Perez, who along with his wife Carola welcomed their third child this week. Verstappen had decorated their rooms in the paddock with balloons and also presented Checo with a bunch of gifts for his baby boy. 

These gifts included a bunch of baby essential clothing like a pair of socks, an eating bib and a bunch of stickers with the 2021 World Champion’s number on them. After surprising his teammate, Verstappen had a decent first FP1 session as he finished third with a time of 1:20:164 behind the Ferraris of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. 

Before the start of the weekend in Barcelona, Verstappen has expressed his excitement about driving at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. He said,  “We had an incredible week in Miami, I’ve had some time to rest with my family since and now I’m looking forward to driving in Barcelona again.” 

“I have a lot of good memories at the track, from my first win in Formula 1 back in 2016 when I was 18. Hopefully, we can keep the momentum going from the last few races with a clean start from Friday onwards,” he added.

Verstappen also addressed how the team and he know a whole lot about the track in Barcelona as they practised a lot here. He said, “Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is a track that we all know very well as a team, due to the amount of testing we have done there over the years so, unlike Miami, we have a substantial amount of data to use ahead of the race.”
