Max Verstappen has had a sim racing rig installed aboard his Falcon 900EX private jet.

The two-time world champion is known for competing in races across multiple platforms.

Most recently, he was in the headlines after that withdraw from the Le Mans Virtual 24 Hours after being disconnected while leading the race.

His extracurricular activities are not seen as a distraction by Red Bull, but rather by the company’s motorsport advisor, Dr. Helmut Marko, as an advantage.

“The opposite is the case. He even had his private plane converted so that he can fly a simulator in the air in the future,” he told the German Press Agency sports1.

“But that’s a good thing, because Max needs this distraction.

“In any case, it didn’t do him any harm with his two titles.”

Verstappen won’t be able to compete online while he’s flying, but he’ll still be able to make the rounds.

Most simulators have offline features ranging from the ability to log laps to compete against computer-generated opponents.

Pictures of the two-time world champion’s home simulator show him enjoying a triple screen configuration, with a fourth believed to be connected to a second computer running his stream.

It has a Playseat frame and Precision Sim Engineering LM-X steering wheel, which retails from £2295, while the force feedback system is worth over £3500.

All in all, Verstappen’s home setup, including the gaming computer, is worth around A$25,000.

His aircraft, the Falcon 900EX, is a long-haul business jet that can reach most Formula 1 venues without having to land to refuel.

The market price is approaching $9 million with Verstappen acquiring its 2020 used car.
