Max Verstappen considers participating in 24 hours of Le Mans together with his father

In the past, the Red Bull driver has already expressed his willingness to take his chance in the legendary endurance race at the Circuit de la Sarthe. His preference would therefore go to a line up with his father.

“Yes, we do talk about it a bit,” said Verstappen according to ‘motorsport.com’. “The hypercar is coming now, but more participants are needed to be fully settled.”

“I think it will take a few more years to really get a bit more of a good idea of ​​what I might want to do at Le Mans.”

“It’s something I would definitely like to do in the future. It would of course be great if I could do that with my father.”

This year, the new hypercar class consists of the factory Toyota team and Glickenhaus as a private team. But in the coming years, big names will step in, including Peugeot and Ferrari.

Jos Verstappen already won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2008 in the LMP2 class. A year later he was there for the last time as a driver for the factory Aston Martin team in the LMP1 class and had to be content with thirteenth place along with teammates Anthony Davidson and Darren Turner.
