In 2022, Red Bull and Verstappen.com joined forces to create Verstappen.com Racing X Red Bull. The initiative fueled by Max Verstappen’s passion for motorsport and desire to create a platform to bring different forms of motorsport together under one umbrella. The partnership with Red Bull is a direct result of the close relationship between Max and Red Bull, a relationship that is ever-growing into the future.
Max’s passion is bringing together racing projects from both the virtual and real world, creating a platform that is of interest to all different types of motorsport fans. Max’s interest in motorsport spans beyond just Formula One, which was the brainchild behind this project, to incorporate and expand the Verstappen name past Formula One and into GT3 racing, Rallying and Virtual Racing.
The Verstappen.com partnership with Red Bull is clearly visible in the co-designed logo, which incorporates the brand identities of both, symbolising the close relationship between Max and Red Bull.
Verstappen.com Racing’s mission is to integrate racing teams from both the virtual and real world and support these teams and drivers to maximize their potential.
As the co-founder and driving force behind Verstappen.com Racing, Max Verstappen is a double Formula One World Champion. With his back-to-back titles in 2021 and 2022, he has become part of a very select group of Formula 1 drivers in history while he is only just 25 years old. He is continuously breaking records in the pinnacle of Motorsport.
What started as a hobby 20 years ago has grown over time into the most successful simulator racing team in the world. In 2022, Team Redline had yet another successful year, both on and off track.

Team Redline has developed their HQ in Tilburg, into a state-of-the-art simulator racing facility, hosting top-of-the-line simulators, Max’s personal race-worn memorabilia, and Red Bull Branding. Team Redline’s image of performance and perfection is now translated into their HQ, with much more to come in the coming years.
