Formula One star Max Verstappen used his visit to the WTCR Race of Netherlands grid on Sunday to offer words of support to fellow Dutchman Nicky Catsburg – and speak highly of the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO.

Verstappen took a break from demonstrating his Red Bull Formula One car at Zandvoort’s Jumbo Racedagen event to join guests from TAG Heuer – the WTCR’s Official Timing Partner – on the grid for Race 2.

During an interview broadcast live on Eurosport, Verstappen told WTCR reporter Alexandra Legouix that: “I like the series, it’s very competitive, a lot of cool cars, it’s fun to see.”

Verstappen also praised BRC Hyundai N LUKOIL Racing Team driver Catsburg: “He’s a fast driver, I’ve raced with him a lot online.”

Verstappen’s comments came during another super-tight weekend of competition in WTCR / OSCARO with 0.9s covering the top 25 in Second Qualifying Q1 alone.
