World Champion Max Verstappen ill before the F1 race in Saudi Arabia. Before the race, it was reported that he had a stomach bug.
The Dutchman now revealed a couple of weeks later The Racelle, that he was in so much pain that he was even a little shocked about it. He did not name the disease, but told about the symptoms.
“I refused to believe the situation. I was really sick at home. I could barely walk. It felt like I didn’t have another lung,” Verstappen revealed.
The driver missed Thursday’s media day and arrived at the Jeddah street track only for Friday’s practice. He thought the disease had already been patted down. It was the other way around.
“After I did one fast lap, I had to recover for two laps to be able to breathe normally again. So the illness affected me throughout the race weekend, and it was not pleasant at all.”

“The track is generally hard. If you’re not in shape, take it easy,” commented Verstappen.

The season continues on Friday in Australia. Verstappen believes he is in better shape.
