Verstappen’s experience in the America’s Cup was not only virtual, since the pilot also had the opportunity to sail aboard the Chase Boat. “I’ve had a great day with Alinghi Red Bull Racing and skipper Arnaud Psarofaghis. They took me on the boat to see up close what the team is doing and I loved it. It was great to hear the opinions of the crew and to hear them talk about the technical part. It is always good to understand a little more about this aspect. Both Formula 1 and sailing are based on communication and teamwork. When I’m in the car, I check in with a lot of people to check that everything works over the course of a race weekend, and the same is true here with the team of eight sailors. It’s about having good communication and working together to get the best result. Besides, it might rain on the weekend and since i’ve been in the water before, even this might help”, commented Max Verstappen.

For the members of Alinghi Red Bull Racing, meeting Max was an opportunity to hear from a champion with similar experience competing in a sport that rewards precision, preparation and the perfect blend of technology and commitment. “It has been incredible to have the opportunity to exchange with someone who is at the top of his discipline like Max is. We have a lot to learn from his approach to high technology and racing under pressure. If we compare Formula 1 and our boat, Max is alone in his car and has to make quick decisions on his own on the track. On our boat, we are eight people on board, we have to communicate with each other and be perfectly coordinated to perform”, said skipper Arnaud Psarofaghis.
