F1 LIVE: Max Verstappen confirms Fernando Alonso talks as FIA president under fire | F1 | Sport

Max Verstappen has revealed that he and Fernando Alonso are already in talks regarding a Le Mans partnership.

“Le Mans I definitely would like to do,” Verstappen said at Honda Thanks Day. “I’ve been there already, when my Dad used to race in Le Mans. The atmosphere is amazing, so many people. Driving through the night, sunrise, I think it’s really cool.

“I’ve been speaking to Fernando about it. He said he would only want to do it with me again. So, I was like ‘Wow, that would be really cool!’

“The only thing is that, for Le Mans, there is not like a minimum weight for the driver. I’m quite a heavy driver, so I’d need to find light team-mates to compensate.

“But Fernando is quite light, so it would be quite good. But we’d need to find another one, so I need to have a look.”
