Max Verstappen placed second in three of his Supercars All Star Eagles debut on Wednesday.
The Red Bull superstar revealed last month that he would not take part in Formula One’s Virtual Grand Prix series – where Liam Payne and Ben Stokes starred – because he was not accustomed to Codemasters F1 2019.
“I always compete to win,” he told Ziggo TV at the time. “I’m not driving anywhere in the back. After that I won’t participate at all.”
Verstappen, of course, tempted his supercars to take the bow as a wildcard.
With the first two races at Silverstone, the Dutchman endured the opposite fate, finishing second in the primary event, but 18th in the second.
Anton de Pascual and Cam Waters claimed victory, but the Red Bulls dominated the second half of the Barcelona track.

Verstappen seemed to have enjoyed the experience despite his failure to secure a personal victory.
“The races are over – it was a lot of fun, very busy too,” he said. “There were some good results in the end, and I didn’t expect it.
“Three times P2, not bad for Red Bull with Red One twice, so I’m very happy about that.
“We did really well together in that final race, especially for him to go back a little bit with the technique and put a better tire on the end.
“It was really great Sup
“I hope you guys [the fans] Loved it and hope I can come back soon for some more action “”
