Biography

Max Verstappen Biography

Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen

Red Bull stunned the world of sport when they announced that they had signed 17-year-old Max Verstappen to their Toro Rosso team for 2015.

But what a decision is has proven to be so far. Verstappen was fearless, brave and natural as he made quite a statement in his first season.

His daring overtakes are already the stuff of legend, and it is already a question of when, not, he will be a world champion.

The Dutchman is said to be a once-in-a-lifetime driver, but it is still highly ambitious and a massive risk to thrust him into the sport’s limelight at such a tender age.

To put it into context, Verstappen is ten years younger than Sebastian Vettel, and he was only two when Jenson Button made his debut.

Button raced against Max’s father, Jos, who carried the Dutch flag admirably for years. However, his son enjoys a greater reputation already.

Verstappen is, obviously,  the sport’s youngest ever driver but it has benefited him that his team-mate is 21-year-old Carlos Sainz, another youngster.

Verstappen and Sainz will fight it out to show Red Bull which of them is their next world champion, and the Dutchman will be under immediate pressure to succeed, such is the reputation that has been created around him.

However, his display in 2014's Formula 3 championship caught the eye of all the major teams. 10 wins, 16 podiums and seven poles saw him finish third in the championship, and so began a race to sign him.

Red Bull won. Ferrari and Mercedes were interested and will rue missing out. This season, and probably every other season he races, Verstappen will scrutinised more than most.

Red Bull say he’s as good as Ayrton Senna, and after being hired at such a young age. After one season, he looks every bit as skilled as the Brazil legend.
