#maxverstappen powers with the #double #F1 #title #winning RB 7 through the #streets of the #scenic #sicilian #capital of #Palermo.
After two intense races at Spa and Zandvoort and with the Italian Grand Prix this weekend, Red Bull Racing went in search of a little rest and relaxation with a spin around the Sicilian capital of Palermo ahead of the beautiful chaos of Monza.
– In ‚Ciao Palermo, Monza is calling‘, the #roadtrip pays #tribute to one of Italy’s most #evocative and #vibrant #cities by starting at Palermo’s oldest and most famous #Ballarò #street #market.
– The RB7 then powers through the picturesque city’s narrow laneways before hitting the wider grand boulevards, including the #ViaVittorioEmanuele, which cuts through the historic centre.
– After arriving at the beautiful #QuattroCanti, it heads towards the #PortaFelice and the #ForoItalico promenade, passing by #YouTube #star #Jakidale along the way.
– The RB7 leaves the #Mondello #beach for last where, after encountering #Wakeboard #World #Champion #MassimilianoPiffaretti, it’s loaded onto a boat to finish its journey.
– Looking ahead to the Italian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen revealed: „I’m looking forward to the Italian Grand Prix. I have a lot of history with go karting in Italy from back in the day and I always enjoy the food there. Traditionally it hasn’t been the best track for our chassis and power unit package. It’s fast and the braking zones are really important and quite tough, but I enjoy driving the track and hopefully it will suit us better this year. The fans are so passionate about racing and the #Tifosi come out in force. I’m looking forward to seeing all of them there in the grandstands.“
– Verstappen leads the 2021 drivers‘ standings by three points from Lewis Hamilton with #RedBullRacing #Honda teammate Sergio Pérez fifth overall and they are 12 points behind Mercedes in the constructors standings.
