Yuki Tsunoda, unlike Max Verstappen, will have a drive during the Red Bull Formula event at the Nürburgring on 9 September later this year. AlphaTauri announces this in a press release.

The Japanese will drive a Honda NSX GT3 Evo. Tsunoda is looking forward to it, he says: "I've never driven at the Nürburgring before, so I'm really looking forward to the event in September. I can't wait to drive around it in my HONDA NSX GT3 Evo, which is an incredible car and a proven race-winning machine at the highest level of GT3 competition."

'Driven in Gran Turismo'

The Japanese himself says he has never driven on the track. Yet it will not be entirely new to the AlphaTauri driver: "The Nordschleife is a legendary circuit, I just experienced it on the Gran Turismo videogame and already enjoyed it a lot."

No Verstappen

Besides Tsunoda, Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo will also get behind the wheel at the Red Bull event. Max Verstappen had also indicated he wanted to take part, but he was denied permission by Helmut Marko.
