The Dutchman, demonstration run capped the day’s activities, which also featured a large parade, in which the three-time F1 race winner sampled Aston Martin machinery.

“First of all, thanks to Mobil 1 for bringing us here to SEMA”, Max said. “It was amazing, and to do donuts here in front of so many passionate fans here in Las Vegas was great. I really enjoyed it”.

“The RB7 is always good to drive. It’s great car and has such an awesome history,” he added.

“I think this is also the first time I’ve done a show run under floodlights. Granted the coloured visor made things look a bit weird but it was cool!”

The final reactions about the mega automobile show – the world’s biggest specialist equipment exhibition? “Just great. I think America loves speed, the noise of the RB7,” he smiled. “They love big engines, and I think Vegas is the perfect place to be for that.”

Verstappen sits sixth in the F1 drivers’ standings with two races to go, 30 points behind Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen in fifth place, and has scored more points in the last four rounds than any other driver.
