A somewhat less common subject in Formula 1 is the eating pattern that the drivers follow. They have to be in top shape, and everyone has their own diet to keep them in shape. Max Verstappen has explained what type of diet he follows.
In a video on his YouTube channel for sponsor G-Star RAW, Max Verstappen said he has nothing to do with hot drinks. “I do try to drink tea, but I really don’t like it. And coffee almost makes me hurl.” When asked if he doesn’t need coffee to wake up, he jokingly replied: “That’s why I drink Red Bull, isn’t it?”
What does Verstappen’s breakfast actually consist of? Not much, because he doesn’t have breakfast. He does intermittent fasting, skipping breakfast but having lunch.
“I haven’t been able to eat in the morning since I was little, so I just eat a slightly larger lunch.”
How much influence does Formula 1 have on Verstappen’s diet? “I can’t eat and drink everything I want, unfortunately. I’m always on the weight limit, 74-75 kilograms. So I have to pay attention.”
