None other than Daniel Craig wished Max Verstappen success just before the Formula 1 race at Silverstone in England. The James Bond actor came to take a look in the pit box of Red Bull, the racing stable of Verstappen.

“We’ve been expecting you …”

“Mr Bond, we’ve been expecting you …”, tweeted Red Bull Racing on Sunday with a nod to the famous one-liner from the Bond films. On the attached photo you can see that Craig is posing together with Verstappen and his teammate Pierre Gasly.

Bond has been in the spotlight the whole weekend at Red Bull, which is sponsored by Aston Martin, the British car brand that James Bond loves. Moreover, Sunday’s race is the 1007th Grand Prix in Formula 1. “A great opportunity to celebrate our partnership with Aston Martin in Bond style,” said team boss Christian Horner.

The Verstappen and Gasly cars therefore display the iconic Bond logo on a pontifical basis and the drivers wear special suits that look like tuxedos for the occasion.
