Max Verstappen experienced a special visit on Tuesday. The Dutchman was allowed to take a seat on Marc Márquez's bike. For Verstappen, getting on it clearly took some getting used to.

Both men bring with them a pile of world titles. Whereas Verstappen is well on his way in Formula 1 with two world championships won, Márquez's number of world titles is something he can only dream of for now.

Indeed, the 29-year-old Spaniard has already stood with the top prize in his hands 10 times. Verstappen, who joined Sergio Perez in conversation with Márquez, was given a detailed explanation of the bike and also decided to sit on it himself.

Verstappen rises on world title rankings

Verstappen has only five drivers ahead of him with his world title this year. Ayrton Senna was good for three titles, Alain Prost and Sebastian Vettel ended the tally at four. Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher hold the record with seven world titles.
