WTCR / OSCARO racer Tom Coronel reckons he could prove Max Verstappen wrong if he got the chance to drive his compatriot’s Red Bull Formula One car.

Verstappen was asked in an interview how long Coronel could last in an F1 machine and jokingly responded that Coronel’s “neck would fall off after two corners”, such are the physical demands placed on drivers by F1 cars.

Coronel, a friend of the Verstappen family, said: “I will challenge that one! I would say I would do 10 laps! Certainly not 60 but 10 for sure! First of all, I train well and if I know I get the chance to drive I will train even more. I’ve done Formula Nippon before so I have an idea what to expect. But it’s not something that will happen.

"Like the Verstappens we live for motorsport, we are addicted to motorsport, but I don’t think I will let him drive my CUPRA TCR because he would crash it in two corners!”
