Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen has already proven his reign in Formula 1 with his Red Bull car. He joined Red Bull in 2016. He had been only 16 when he was driving for Toro Rosso. By the time the Dutch driver was 18, he had won the Spanish Grand Prix with Red Bull in just 228 days of his debut. He beat Sebastian Vettel’s win at the age of 21, which had made him the youngest driver to win a race previously.

Verstappen bagged his first podium win at the Spanish Grand Prix in 2016. Max Verstappen won his second race at the Malaysian Grand Prix in 2017. In 2020, Max Verstappen was able to win the Silverstone Grand Prix which was the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen had equalized his points with Hamilton in the Driver’s Standings by the end of the 2021 season. During the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the Dutch driver had passed Hamilton in the 5th final lap and taken home his first-ever World Championship.

The 2022 season became the year of Max Verstappen’s dominance when he managed to win a total of 15 races out of the 22 races in total. He achieved his second World Champion title in 2022.

Max Verstappen’s debut F1 season with Red Bull
Max Verstappen’s debut Formula 1 season did not see a happy ending to it but during the Spanish Grand Prix, he led the race after the 44th lap. He was able to get the lead in the race after Lewis Hamilton and Rosberg’s crash which caused both drivers to DNF (Did Not Finish) throughout the race. Max Verstappen achieved his first-ever podium at the Spanish Grand Prix at the age of 18.

When the FIA found out they made it a rule that only 18 years and above are allowed to be racing in Formula 1. His rocky start with his teammate Daniel Ricciardo had made it difficult for any Red Bull car to win. However, the Dutch driver went on to win podiums in Belgium, Singapore, Japan, the United States, Canada, and France. During the Mexican Grand Prix, he managed to surpass Hamilton in his Mercedes car.

The Dutch driver leads the race after overtaking first place into Turn 1 and won the Mexican Grand Prix. By the end of his debut season, he was in the 4th position in the Driver’s Standings with 249 points. He had bagged 2 wins and 11 podiums in his first season with Red Bull and 2 of the fastest laps.
