Training to the Max



We thought about adding a witty caption to this picture of Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen, but then we decided - why should we have all the fun? It's over to you for your funniest suggestions!

When it comes to 'just the facts', this is obviously an arty monochrome shot of Max working out in the gym, and in particular toughening up his neck muscles so that they're up to the job of withstanding the crippling cornering speeds experienced in modern day Formula One cars during a full-length Grand Prix.

Sure, there's hi-tech ways of doing that sort of training - but why waste precious time when you can do it the old-fashioned way between other exercises? The best drivers can probably even fit in forty winks while they're 'resting' in this position!
