Max Verstappen has partnered with EA to bring more content to its games | The Sun

TWO-TIME Formula 1 world champion Max Verstappen has partnered with publisher EA to bring more content to its games.

As part of the deal he will create content across the games in EA’s wide portfolio.

He will also be taking on EA Sports as a sponsor for his races, including the EA logo on his car and across the chin section of his helmet.

Verstappen is known to be a keen gamer. He plays F1 Manager and competes in virtual Formula 1 races.

He made remarks about one of his teammates' low F1 Manager 22 ratings during a race.

Verstappen recently competed in the Virtual Le Mans 24-hour race, but dropped out after disconnections meant he fell behind.

This did not stop his love for virtual racing, and recently installed a F1 simulator in his £12million private jet.

The F1 driver is a big fan of EA’s library of sports games, making the partnership a perfect fit.

He is said to be a big FIFA fan, and has been seen opening FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) packs before races.

Codemasters, the developer of the officially licensed F1 games, is also owned by EA, and a new game will be released later this year.
