Verstappen diventa simdriver con Redline!

Recommended Posts

VELOCIPEDE

La notizia è senza dubbio inusuale: il famoso simracing team Redline, una delle "scuderie virtuali" più forti del mondo videoludico, che annovera fra le file dei suoi piloti personaggi ben noti come Greger "Alien" Huttu e l'italiano Enzo Bonito, ha annunciato che da oggi vestirà i propri colori nientemeno che Max Verstappen, pilota 17enne della Toro Rosso in Formula 1. Il ragazzo terribile olandese è infatti appassionato da sempre di simulazione di guida, che utilizzerà ovviamente anche come allenamento intensivo.

 

Great news for us again!! Dutch Superstar Max Verstappen has joined us, after an incredible rise in real racing, Max joins us to practise and remain at the top of his game.

Max later said, "I enjoy simracing outside of Formula 1. Ive been working with Atze for a while already and of course with Team Redline and Fanatec I'll be sharing the virtual track with the fastest simracers in the world which is a great test and the way I like it!"

Team manager Atze was equally pleased, "I'm happy and honoured to have Max onboard at Team Redline! Looking forward to continue our sim battles like we did in the F3 last year." "It's great having Max onboard, he was immediately incredibly fast in sim racing a unique natural talent, very proud to have him representing us in the sim racing world."
Dom, Team Principal

A quanto pare Max Verstappen ci ha preso davvero gusto con i simulatori! Nel video qui sotto pubblicato dal simracing team Redline, per il quale corre virtualmente il driver Toro Rosso, possiamo ammirare Max che si allena con iRacing a Spa insieme al suo compagno Atze Kerkhof.

We had quite a few questions on what Max was doing training wise in iRacing, let's just say he's been practising hard:P Check out some of the moves between Atze and Max - seems familiar!:)

Max Verstappen: "I sorpassi? Studiati al simulatore"

Come ricorderete, il terribile pilotino olandese era entrato nel team virtuale dei Redline alla fine di luglio, approfittando della pausa estiva dei Gran Premi, quindi Max è tornato nell’abitacolo della sua Toro Rosso in Belgio e a Monza, mostrando in entrambe le occasioni spettacolari sorpassi, l’ultimo in terra brianzola quando ha sopravanzato la Sauber di Nasr all’esterno in Prima Variante! Max ha rivelato oggi in una intervista ad Autosport che le manovre sono frutto dell‘esperienza maturata al simulatore.

”È sempre un bene perché sai quanto spazio hai” – ha dichiarato il pilota della Toro Rosso  – “Anche nel simracing a volte si va troppo lunghi e così sai che non si può fare. Penso che tutto ciò mi abbia aiutato. Voglio dire, l’ho fatto per Spa e poi anche a Monza e per due volte ha funzionato anche sulla pista reale. Il sorpasso che ho fatto su Nasr, è esattamente la stessa cosa che provato al simulatore“.

L'ormai ben noto simracing team Redline, scuderia virtuale che può vantare tra le sue fila addirittura il pilota F1 Max Verstappen, oltre all'imbattibile "alieno" della simulazione Greger Huttu, è stato intervistato da GT Planet, per parlare a più voci del futuro del simracing. Ovviamente si comincia parlando di Grand Prix Legends...

 

You’ve mentioned GPL being a part of the team’s history. Papyrus’ game is approaching the two-decade mark now, which means some sim racers have the unique experience of growing up with these realistic simulators. How do you find that changes things?

Dom Duhan: GPL was huge for us, there were a few things it did that moved sim racing to new levels and indeed weren’t matched for many years. The GPL physics engine felt so dynamic and even to this date despite being superseded by most other titles out there, it still feels relatively good. It was also insanely difficult to drive, some of our drivers like Greger or Andy Wilke drove in leagues where you would race 100 laps of Monaco with full damage, one tap of the wall and you are out – this training shaped many of the top sim racers for the next 10 years.

Come già sappiamo, il giovane pilota della Toro Rosso F1 Max Verstappen è un appassionato di simracing, tanto da far parte del noto team Redline. L'olandese ha allestito a casa sua una postazione di guida con cockpit Playseat F1 (realizzato su misura per lui), triplo schermo, volante direct drive Leo Bodnar, pedaliera Heusinkveld; proprio la Playseat è andata quindi a fargli visita, realizzando il video e le foto che vedete qui sotto.

 

Playseat visits Max Verstappen!
Playseat visits Max VerstappenWhen someone like Max Verstappen – youngest Formula 1 driver ever ánd Playseat racer since he was nine! – needs a new racing setup installed, Playseat gladly goes by for a visit! We placed a custom made “Max Verstappen F1 seat” in his gaming room. The simulator is completely tailored to Max’s wishes: a unique Playseat® rig with a Bodnar racing wheel and Heusinkveld pedals. For the most realistic experience, we helped him with the settings of the hardware. To get it just right, there was a lot of testing, of which you can see a video and some photos below!
The new setup provides a very realistic simulation which helps Max to prepare for real races, but also means a lot of racing fun in his free time! We had a nice time installing the Playseat® simulator and are proud Max races at home with our rig! Hopefully we will see a lot more awesome new overtakes by Max coming Formula 1 season, which might just be practiced while seated in his Playseat® simulator. Good luck, Max!

Come già sappiamo, il giovane pilota della Red Bull F1 Max Verstappen è un appassionato di simracing, tanto da far parte del noto team Redline. Proprio il portale della Red Bull ha pubblicato a questo link una interessante intervista fatta al pilota olandese: Max ci parla dell'ultimo F1 2016 di Codemasters (in modo forse troppo "benevolo", visto che si tratta del sim ufficiale della FIA), ma gli spunti interessanti sono comunque numerosi.

What are the biggest differences and what do you find toughest about virtual racing?
One of the toughest things is the fact the feel of the car is completely different, it doesn’t feel like it does in reality because you don’t have the G-forces and that makes it much more difficult to control. There are some tricks you can do on a virtual sim compared to a real car that can help you but in general it’s about 90 per cent the same.
