Max Verstappen is an exciting Dutch driver who races for Red Bull Racing and is the 2021 Formula 1 world champion, after a dramatic last lap victory in Abu Dhabi helped him to beat rival Lewis Hamilton to the crown.

He is the son of former F1 driver Jos Verstappen, whose career in Formula 1 spanned from 1994-2003.

The Dutchman is regarded as one of the brightest and most talented drivers in Formula 1, and he became the sport’s youngest ever competitor at the age of just 17 back in 2015.

Verstappen began racing in 2015 for Toro Rosso before joining Red Bull. A year later, at the Circuit de Catalunya in 2016, he became the youngest ever race winner at the age of 18 years and 228 days.

In the time since, he had to be patient for a championship winning car to be delivered by the Red Bull team but had that opportunity in 2021 and, after one of the most dramatic seasons in memory, he managed to achieve the ultimate goal of winning the title.
