Max Verstappen says he can’t wait to get back racing this weekend as Formula 1 returns after the summer break.

The Dutchman has had a stellar campaign so far with him moving 80 points clear of nearest rival Charles Leclerc in the Drivers’ standings, after winning the Hungarian Grand Prix last time out in fine style as he rose from 10th to 1st.

Indeed, it’d take a brave person to bet against Max making it title number two this season as things stand, and Max Verstappen is unsurprisingly eager to get going this weekend at a track that he has labelled one of his favourites.

Speaking ahead of the weekend at Spa-Francorchamps, Max said:

“I’m feeling ready to race again after a good break. I definitely got the itch to get back to it. It will be a busy triple header but it will be okay to manage as we’ve all had a rest. The upgrades to the track have made it a little more old school with the gravel traps which I think is a good idea. It’s my favourite track so I’m looking forward to racing there this weekend. It looks like there might be rain around which will make it more tricky, but luckily as a team we like a challenge.”
