But the interesting thing was how Max Verstappen reached P2 from the 15th position in a matter of the final few laps. Also, the Dutchman snatched away the fastest lap time from his teammate. Checo did not realize, but the Dutchman took it in the final lap, gaining an extra point.
Max Verstappen Takes His Diet And Training Routine Very Seriously
The Red Bull driver is only 25 years old, and to maintain consistency, all the drivers go through an intense diet and training routine, and so does Max. Verstappen spoke to Express Sport revealing how he trains. He said that the most challenging part of racing is the neck strain and lower back pain. He uses balancing exercises and weights at home. The Dutchman has got a series of exercise machines. Max Verstappen mentioned, “I do a lot of running and cardio. However, I don’t have an intense workout routine like most.” The Dutchman feels he is lucky because if he does not train for a week, it does not have any adverse effect on his strength.
Max Verstappen emphasizes the value of rest during a hectic F1 calendar. He takes several days off for recovery whenever he gets a chance. Verstappen spends a lot of time on simulators. Red Bull boss Christian Horner mentioned a few days back that Max plays virtual racing games to relax before every race. Verstappen knows how important diet is to maintain shape. So, Max said that he does not eat breakfast. Instead, Verstappen has got a big lunch. The Dutchman carries a weight of 75 kilos. It is very important for drivers to stay healthy, so Verstappen eats plenty depending on where in the world he is racing.
The Dutchman Is The Most Competitive On The Grid

He is far ahead of the rest on the points table. His teammate Checo is 15 points behind, sitting in second place. It is clear that the Dutchman is determined not to give anyone a chance to take the championship away from him this year. Checo said Max Verstappen is the hardest driver to beat on the grid.
