A new superstar of the sport, Max Verstappen arrived with a bang and has continued to produce explosions. Few argue with those who have forecast that the young Dutchman is a champion of the future.
In 2017, despite mechanical issues and crashes, he still managed to finish sixth position in the Drivers’ Championship, which has been more than enough to make people sit up and take notice.
Verstappen was 17 when he became the youngest and least experienced driver to join the grid in F1® history in 2015, finishing 12th in the world championship in his debut season.
His father is Dutchman Jos Verstappen, a journeyman Formula 1® racer of the 1990s. His mother is Sophie Kumpen, a very successful and fast kart driver.
His talent and maturity are almost unprecedented, his potential seems limitless, and he now looks towards a future that many have forecast will see him win races, titles and a place among the greats.
