Watch: Max Verstappen and Lando Norris spotted partying hard

Max Verstappen claimed his second World Championship at the recent Japanese Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen appears to be celebrating his second Drivers’ World Championship in style, after being spotted once again partying in Monaco, whilst fellow Formula 1 driver and friend Lando Norris was at the controls of the DJ booth.

Norris is known to be a music lover and has been recorded a few times now mixing it up on the mixing table, perhaps suggesting that a side-career as a DJ is on the cards for the Quadrant founder.

The British driver is often spotted partying with Verstappen, with the pair having become close both in the real and virtual paddock, as the duo were part of the same sim-racing team.

Prior to founding Quadrant, Norris’ gaming and lifestyle brand, the duo were team-mates for Team Redline and actually won the virtual Spa 24 Hours together in 2019.

Since Quadrant was created, Norris has tended to compete for his own brand rather than another side, understandably.

The pair’s friendship was actually questioned at the Japanese Grand Prix recently, prior to Verstappen claiming his second consecutive title.

Norris was forced to take to the grass on the inside of the terrifying 130R during Q3 at Suzuka, after the Red Bull driver seemingly tried to block the Briton.

The McLaren driver was visibly livid with his pal, who he had to go to the stewards’ room with after an investigation into the incident took place.

Nothing was ultimately awarded, with the Dutchman having been handed a reprimand.

Due to only being awarded a reprimand, Verstappen kept his pole position at the race, which he went on to win, ensuring that he joined Fernando Alonso, Mika Hakkinen, Emerson Fittipaldi, Jim Clark, Graham Hill and Alberto Ascari as a double World Champion.

His 12th victory of the year also saw the 25-year-old move one win closer to matching Sebastian Vettel’s and Michael Schumacher’s joint record of 13 wins in a single season, something he can eclipse with victory at the United States and then the Mexican Grand Prix.

Victory at Suzuka also meant Verstappen moved level with Alonso on 32 race wins, with double that amount likely to be achieved by the imperious Red Bull driver.

What remains to be seen by Verstappen, is if he’ll continue to celebrate his achievements by letting loose in the clubs of Monte-Carlo.
