Max Verstappen reached out to his fans on social media to explain how he is passing the time at home and staying in shape.

The 2020 Formula 1 season is yet to get started after the first nine rounds of the 2020 season were put on hold. Out of those nine the Australian and Monaco GPs were cancelled completely.

The Canadian Grand Prix was the latest race to be postponed, meaning the French Grand Prix on June 28 is the closest event yet to be called off.

When the 2020 Formula 1 season will start remains unknown, but Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto offered some hope of the season getting underway in early July.

But even though the racing is on hold, drivers need to keep themselves in good physical and mental condition to be ready for when the call does come to get the campaign underway.

And Red Bull’s Verstappen took to social media to let his fans know what he is doing to pass the time.

“At the moment through the current situation I try to stay at home as much as possible of course and try to do my workouts at home,” he said.

“Of course we stay ready, I do a lot of sim work on my simulator at home and of course a lot of training as well to stay ready for whenever we’re going to get started again.

“I hope you guys are staying healthy in the meantime and I hope to see you guys all very soon.”

Verstappen has been extremely active in the world of Esports since the real-life racing ground to a halt.

He won the title for Team Readline’s Real Racers Never Quit Series, winning six races to take the championship by 60 points over Audi factory driver Kelvin van der Linde.
