Max Verstappen is back in full training for the second half of the season. The championship leader was able to enjoy his holiday, but now has to get back to work.

Verstappen is having an excellent season as reigning world champion, already well ahead of the competition. Charles Leclerc is already 80 points behind and that gives the Red Bull driver a great chance of winning the title. However, the Dutchman knows that it will not happen by itself and is training hard again.

On Twitter Verstappen shared a photo of himself running. He's pushing quite hard, because the young Dutchman is already sweating heavily. In the caption Verstappen is also clear: ''Halfway through the summer break but gearing up for the second part of the season. I will be ready.''

It is also the first message from Verstappen in ages that he posts. Since the last GP he was hardly active on his social channels. But now he is ready again and is preparing for the Belgian Grand Prix in a fortnight's time.
