Two days before the Monaco Grand Prix which will take place this Sunday in the Principality, Lando Norris (McLaren) and Max Verstappen (Red Bull) are in the starting blocks. And even though they are not in their single-seater, the drivers have fun on the track.

The Briton and the Dutchman met at Tennis Padel Soleil, the association club Padel Monegasque. Norris on the left, Verstappen on the right, the two friends played a relaxed friendly match.

Le padel is a sport popular within the paddock. Two months earlier, the three-time world champion had also trained with Daniel Ricciardo (Racing Bulls) in Bahrain... and had generously lent him one of the eleven rackets in his collection.

It was through his father that Auxence discovered the padel, one evening in June 2018. Today, he passionately follows the international circuit and teases the pala in his training club, Toulouse Padel Club. You can also find it on La Feuille de Match and LesViolets.com, two specialist media on Toulouse Football Club.
