Verstappen is known for his fearless driving and is always looking to make a tough move stick. That has seen him crash into other drivers in the past, but he is just 22 and has matured in recent years. The Dutchman has a bright future ahead of him and is in the hunt for his first F1 title.

Net worth and salary

Max Verstappen might be one of the youngest drivers on the circuit but he has an estimated net worth of $25million in 2020.

This has been mostly due to his contract with Red Bull as he earns close to $10m per year. The deal was signed fairly recently and Verstappen is one of the top earners in the F1 paddock.

F1 record

Max Verstappen could have been a Mercedes driver but opted to join Red Bull back in 2014. While Mercedes have dominated F1 since then, Verstappen has ensured he is close to the leading pack, even if the Red Bull’s engine doesn’t match up to the Silver Arrows.

The Dutchman became the youngest racer to participate in a Grand Prix weekend by driving in the first free practice session at the 2014 Japanese GP.

More records were to follow as he became the youngest to start a GP. The Dutchman also recorded a point at the age of 17, which was another milestone.

Verstappen created history by winning the Spanish GP in his first race for Red Bull. He had been promoted from the sister Toro Rosso team midway through the 2016 season.

Verstappen became a permanent fixture in Red Bull since then, and his best performance came in the 2019 season where he finished third in the driver’s championship.

The 2020 campaign was a tough one as Mercedes dominated the season. However, Verstappen won two races and also got a pole position to end the season third, again.

Family and relationships

As stated earlier, Max has racing flowing through his veins. His father, Jos, was an F1 driver, while his mother, Sophie Kumpen, also raced in karting.

Verstappen has other relatives also in the racing field with one relative also serving as the manager for PK Carsport in the Euro Series.

Verstappen doesn’t share a lot of information regarding his private life but reports claim that his current girlfriend is German student Dilara Sanlik.

The pair have been snapped during a holiday in the United States. Verstappen was earlier dating fellow racer Mikaela Ahlin-Kottulinsky for a year. However, he broke up with his then-girlfriend after joining the Red Bull Racing team.

Verstappen has been linked with other females too, such as hockey player Maxime Pourquie and Instagram model Joyce Godefridim.

Sponsorships and endorsements

Max Verstappen is one of the most recognizable faces in the F1 circuit and he has several sponsorship and endorsement deals at the moment.

The Dutch youngster often features in ads for Jumbo Supermarkets while he is also tied up with brands such as Tag Heuer, Ziggo and Exact.
