Verstappen 'signs' by the FC Barcelona

Soccer and Formula 1 have always been connected, and it is that the highest category of motorsport has been an attraction for all football stars, who want to enjoy themselves as one more from the stands, although with the privilege of being close to the single-seaters before departure.

It is not uncommon to see some like David Beckham , who was present at the last Miami Grand Prix, or Cristiano Ronaldo himself, a regular with his family at glamorous dates in the Principality of Monaco.

The pilots have also not hidden their love for what is known as the ‘king sport’ due to the large number of fans who come to the stadiums for each match, such as Carlos Sainz, who experienced Real Madrid ‘s comeback against Manchester City in the semi-finals with emotion of the Champions League during a publicity event in Miami.

Max Verstappen is another of those who lives with a passion for football, and the current world champion, despite being born in Belgium and having Dutch nationality, is a fan of FC Barcelona. The Red Bull driver, before contesting the 2022 Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix, spent a few minutes with the culé team player at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, the protagonist of the famous 6-1 victory over PSG in 2017.

 

Sergi Roberto , the defender of the Blaugrana team, traveled to the Catalan track to meet Verstappen, to whom he gave a personalized elastic with the number that currently presides over his RB18, the #1 champion, in addition to his last name. The Dutchman, for his part, gave the FC Barcelona player an autographed Red Bull team shirt, which, for sure, he will keep with great affection.

This has not been the only time that Verstappen has recognized his Barcelonanism, and it is that in an event with Tag Heuer in 2018 in which he shared microphones with Andrés Iniesta , one of the legends of the club, he said that Fernando Alonso, partner of honor of Real Madrid, Barcelona’s closest rival, “supported the wrong team”. The Dutchman was also able to spend a few moments before the tragic death of Johan Cruyff , another of the Catalan team’s myths, in the 2016 preseason on the same circuit.
