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 be scrutinised more than most.

Red Bull says 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.

In 2016 Max moved just before the Spanish GP from Toro Rosso to Red Bull after Daniil Kvyat crashed for the 2nd time that season. His first race for Red Bull turned out into a fairytale. Both Mercedes drivers collided into each other after 3 corners and Max who qualified 4th on the grid could race to the lead.

The final stages of the race he was under severe pressure by Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen. Raikkonen's last win was back in 2013 and didn't score a win since his comeback to Ferrar. The  Dutchman showed his outstanding racing skills and was able to stay in front of the faster Ferrari to win his first-ever Grand Prix at the age of 18!

The whole season Verstappen was growing by the minute and made the races a lot more entertaining. Sometimes he was the only driver who passed other drivers and made the show on his own. The very wet and rainy race in Brazil was his best race that season. He made up the teams bad tyres choice by passing 13 cars in the last 13 laps of the race to finish on the podium. He drove completely other racing lines than the other drivers and engraved his name in F1.

In 2017 expectations were high after Verstappens outstanding performance in the last races of 2016. But compared to the Ferrari SF70H and Mercedes W08 the RB13 wasn't quick enough right from the start of the season.

The team did develop their car remarkably well during the season and at the end of the season they even had a quicker car than Ferrari. Verstappen did won 2 races and a total of 4 podiums in 2017, but bad reliability and collisions with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen limited his performance to a 6th place in the 2017 drivers championship just behind his team mate Daniel Ricciardo.

The Dutch driver did sign a new contract in 2017 to stay for another 2 season at Red Bull Racing, while other top teams also would like to have the hugely talented driver. The 2018 RB14 looked to be a lot quicker and reliable right from the start. They have as always the best chassis Their big Achilles heel is the Renault power unit, that didn't have the party mode, power and reliability of the Mercedes power unit.

In 2018, Verstappen started the year with difficulties, both from the car and with some mistakes from himself. However, after his FP3 crash at Monaco, which did not allow him to participate in qualifying, Verstappen improved a lot and finished the year strongly with two victories —at Austria and Mexico— and a total of 11 podiums. Also, the win slipped out of his hands in Brazil after Esteban Ocon, a backmarker, tried to overtake him and collided with his Red Bull, which forced him to lose the race at the hands of Lewis Hamilton.

The current season has been Verstappen's best in Formula 1. He started the campaign with a podium at Australia, which was Honda's —Red Bull's new engine supplier— first since the 2008 British Grand Prix. He continued to have strong outings and achieved another podium in Spain.

Marko: Leclerc best driver after Verstappen

In Austria, he gave Honda their first victory since the 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix with a stunning display of overtaking in the closing laps and a battle with Charles Leclerc for the win. He gave another show at Silverstone in the following race, but his day did not have the deserved result after Vettel crashed into his car when battling for a podium spot.

Verstappen won at Germany in a tricky race where mistakes were the easier thing to do, but he kept his calm even after a spin and took his seventh Grand Prix win. At Hungary, Max took the first Pole Position of his career and had a strong performance on Sunday. However, Hamilton overtook him after a good strategy for Mercedes paid off with four laps to go.

In 2019, Verstappen has scored 181 points, which is his best tally for any first half of a campaign. Also, he has five podiums and has finished every race inside the top five, a streak that extends to the 2018 Belgian Grand Prix —21 races—.

On the 1st of September of 2019, his streak failed to continue due to a racing incident with Kimi Raikkonen in the first lap of the 2019 Belgian Grand Prix, he went on to finish eighth at Monza, where he suffered grid penalties for exceeding PU elements.

During the 2019 Singapore Grand Prix, at a circuit that was good for the RB15 characteristics, he started fourth and finished third. In the 2019 Mexican Grand Prix, Verstappen did the two fastest laps of Q3 but ignored a yellow flag at the end of his second run and suffered a three-place grid penalty. At the start of the race, he fought with Lewis Hamilton for third place but both went into the grass and lost places. Then, Verstappen overtook Valtteri Bottas but picked up a puncture after a slight touch and had to pit. After the incidents, he finished sixth in the race.

After three races out of the podium positions, he finished third in the 2019 US Grand Prix at Austin. A couple of weeks later, Verstappen took the second Pole Position of his career at the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix and won the race with a great performance. Verstappen fought with Lewis Hamilton for the lead and had to overtake the British champion twice in the race to take his eighth F1 victory.

With second in the 2019 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Verstappen rounded his best year in Formula 1 by sealing third place in the WDC with his career-high of 278 points.

On the 7th of January of 2020, Red Bull announced a three-year contract extension which would keep Verstappen with the team until the end of the 2023 season. The news came in as a pressure-release on the team and the driver, as the 2021 market was expected to produce a big shake-up in Formula 1.

Verstappen was solid in the 2020 F1 season, constantly scoring podiums in usually the second-best car of the grid behind the Mercedes. He won the 2020 70t Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone, where tyres were the main issue and the Red Bull was the best car on that aspect. Verstappen managed his car well and won the race in front of Lewis Hamilton. It was his ninth F1 victory.

For the rest of the season, Verstappen ran into some bad luck, but he managed to fight for P2 in the World Championship with Valtteri Bottas until the late stages of the year. Still, he finished third in the standings behind the two Mercedes and added his 10th F1 victory to his resume with a dominant drive at the 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix from Pole Position.

In 2021 the Red Bull RB16B was at last competitive to the Mercedes and Verstappen was able to win seven of GP's in the first part of the season. He even was leading the championship for a while. Lewis Hamilton of course was his main rival. Both talented drivers had a lot of great fights on the track and even collided several times.

Verstappen receives 3 places grid penalty after Monza collision

The Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton crash during the 2021 Italian GP

The first real collision was at Copse corner when Verstappen stated from pole at the British GP and had to defend to not loose the lead to Hamilton. In Copse Hamilton made a mistake and turned in to late and hit Verstappen on the rear-left wheel. Verstappen crashed hard into the barrier and had to go to the hospital to have some checks.

The second coming together that ended the race of both drivers was in Italy, when both drivers had a slow pitstop and Verstappen ended up with the Red Bull on top of the Mercedes of Hamilton. The Dutchman receive a three places grid penalty the next race in Russia.
