Verstappen eyes Le Mans with father

Max Verstappen could be the next F1 driver heading to Le Mans.

Nico Hulkenberg breathed new life into his career by winning the fabled endurance race at the first attempt.

And now 17-year-old Verstappen, despite his age and his rookie status in F1, is also casting eyes at Le Mans.

That could be because of strong rumours in the Dutch media that his famous father Jos is also said to be eyeing the sports car race.

"You could see me racing again next year," Verstappen snr, who last raced in F1 for Minardi in 2003, is quoted as saying.

"I hope to do Le Mans next year but at the moment I can't say it's 100 per cent for sure."

And Max said the idea of teaming up with his dad is "certainly interesting".

"I would like to do Le Mans with my father," he admitted. "For sure he (Jos) is still competitive -- you don't lose your speed.

"It's certainly interesting, but I think it is something for later," added Max.
