Max Verstappen keeps himself busy with sim racing a lot during the winter break. In a sim race that Team Redline participated in, Verstappen can be heard over the radio when his teammate is driven off the track. The radio message gets his fans laughing.

At the time of writing, Team Redline is in the midst of the 24 Hours of Daytona sim race. The simracing team is participating with several cars, including one car in which Verstappen is driving along with Gianni Vecchio and Chris Lulham. In an earlier race in which the team participated, Vecchio was run off the track hard by an opponent.

Verstappen imitates tirade Wolff

His teammate Verstappen watched and was heard on the radio immediately after the crash: "So instead of giving up his position, he just shunts you out of the way. No worries, I'll report it to Michael Masi." While the rest of the team moved on to the order of the day and looked to save the race, Verstappen went ahead and took Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff to task: "No Mikey! No!", Verstappen shouted.

Wolff lost control on the final lap of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and could be heard screaming at the race control over the radio. Meanwhile, the team has still not calmed down, and team members still feel robbed of the eighth title for Lewis Hamilton. One Instagram user responded wittily under the video that is available on a Verstappen fan page"If there was ever another chance for Verstappen to drive for Wolff, that chance is now definitely gone."
