FORMULA ONE champion Max Verstappen is willing to put aside his rivalry with a fellow driver on the circuit to form the perfect Le Mans dream team.

The Red Bull driver was unstoppable again in his pursuit of a third successive world title.

Verstappen wants to race with Fernando Alonso at Le Mans

The Dutchman appeared at Honda Thanks Day, where he revealed what he dreams of doing.

Unsurprisingly, it was the 24 hours Le Mans race that came up as a discussion.

He said: “What I do want to race is the 24 Hours of Le Mans. I have already been there, when my father raced in Le Mans. The atmosphere is incredible in Resistencia.

“There are so many people, driving at night, at dawn… I think it’s really cool.”

Usually, teams are comprised of two or three drivers for the endurance test.

That prompted Verstappen, 26, to reveal his ideal partner that would form a Le Mans dream team.

He said: “I’ve been talking to Fernando (Alonso) about it. He said he’d just want to do it with me again. So I told him it would be great.

“The only thing is, for Le Mans, there’s no minimum weight for the driver. I’m a Quite a heavy competitor, so I would have to find light teammates to compensate.

“But Fernando is quite light, so that would be very good for us. But we would need to find another one, so I have to take a look.”
