Formula 1 drivers try to play Call of Duty Warzone

During the pandemic last year, many Formula 1 drivers picked up their gaming controllers to have a laugh with their competitors. During this time, many of them competed in different games, including the Raven Software developed Call of Duty Warzone. Rising stars of the sport Max Verstappen and Lando Norris even competed together while playing as a duo.

During their time together as a duo, Verstappen showcased his excitement over a Self Revive Kit. He even flaunted it in front of Norris. However, he was brought back to the ground again after Norris explained he needed the money for a Loadout Drop. In the end, they somehow found the money required for it, which made them happy.

Later on, both players tried climbing down ladders, which almost resulted in their deaths. After Max Verstappen accidentally fell first, Lando Norris tried to save him, but even he misjudged, causing him to fall, which should have ended their game. However, both of them had a self-revive kit. After Max used his kit, he tried finding his friend even though he laid right next to him.

He then made the horrible decision of climbing the same ladder again. After Lando notified his location, Verstappen made the mistake again, and he fell to his death from the same ladder. Thankfully, Lando still had his Self Revive Kit, which helped him save their lives. However, it was hilarious to see both drivers be absolutely clueless about something as simple as a ladder in Warzone.

Fans found the stream to be a total laughter fest during the somber times of the pandemic last year. However, they have now returned to their old stomping grounds of iconic Formula 1 circuits. Both of them are driving well, and after watching their play on the streets of Verdansk, everyone would probably agree that they should probably stick to racing.
