Tsunoda to join Vettel and Ricciardo for 'jaw-dropping' show run
Yuki Tsunoda will participate at the Red Bull Formula Nurburgring event in September. The Japanese driver is the only current F1 driver confirmed for the event, which takes place at the Nordschleife after the summer break, and will drive the Honda NSX GT3 Evo in an AlphaTauri livery. Tsunoda will join Red Bull reserve driver Daniel Ricciardo and now-retired four-time F1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel for the event, which will please fans with show runs and 'other jaw-dropping show highlights' when supporting the Nurburgring 12 Hours. "I've never driven at the Nurburgring before, so I'm really looking forward to the event in September," said Tsunoda. "I can't wait to drive around it in my Honda NSX GT3 Evo, which is an incredible car and a proven race-winning machine at the highest level of GT3 competition. "The Nordschleife is a legendary circuit, I just experienced it on the Gran Turismo video game and already enjoyed it a lot.” Current F1 championship leader Max Verstappen will not attend , however, having been barred from doing so by Red Bull Motorsport Advisor Helmut Marko.
