Max Verstappen Uses Mario Kart Skills To Get Fastest FP1 Time

Max Verstappen has proved his critics well and truly wrong this year, scoring another fourth place for Toro Rosso last time out in Austin.

Now the 18-year-old has set another record to add to his collection, as the youngest driver ever to top a Formula One session having set a lap-time almost three tenths quicker than Daniil Kvyat in second.

Amazingly though he did his best time by straight-lining the esses on his hot lap and even more amazingly, he got away with it!

Never mind eh? I’m sure the stewards will investigate it at some point, maybe after the race on Sunday.

EDIT: Verstappen’s second best (and legal) lap-time would still have put him fastest. Damn this kid is good.
