He had just turned two when his mother came home from the hospital with a little sister for him, but he was gentle and sympathetic, a skilled peacekeeper. Mercedes boss Toto Wolff, an increasingly animated figure as the year wore on, was straight on the radio to Masi. This biography, written by a leading Dutch F1 journalist, examines Max’s remarkable rise to worldwide fame, covering every step of his career up to the end of 2021 as well providing insights into his spirited character and supreme talent. The prescience of that comment, which turned out not to be optimistic enough when you consider that Max made his F1 debut four years earlier than that, was not merely the exuberance of a new father.

Abu Dhabi had often been a place they had dominated the racing, but Red Bull had been close enough for Verstappen to pinch pole position on Saturday. The early chapters deal with Jos Verstappen (warts and all), Max’s Belgium birth but Dutch racing upbringing, his family life and Jos’ hardcore grooming of Max through the junior Dutch and European karting championships up to F3.When his son found himself in a similar position as the youngest driver on the grid and teammate to the vastly more experienced Daniel Ricciardo, Max did not lie down and accept any suggestion of a role as second fiddle. He had a few moments earlier voiced his frustrations at the ‘typical’ decision not to let the cars unlap themselves and give him a shot at Hamilton. Jos had been detained in the Dutch city of Roermond after an incident involving his ex-girlfriend Kelly van der Waal.

Wow factor/money shot: Maybe the famous Max and Lewis accident at Monza in 2021 or maybe the shot of stern Jos and Max before the F3 race at Zandvoort. Rapid single-seater gestation: only 12 months elapsed between his first single-seater experience, a Formula Renault evaluation at Pembrey in South Wales, and his F1 test-driving role with Scuderia Toro Rosso (Red Bull’s junior team) in 2014. Though things are going well right now, the volatility that led him to a physical altercation with Esteban Ocon in the 2020 Brazilian Grand Prix still appears from time to time when things don’t go his way. Sports journalist James Gray seeks to understand the outspoken nature and aggressive driving style that make Verstappen a must-watch before, during and after races, and why his Dutch fans, who turn up to cheer him on in their orange-clad droves, are quite so fanatical.Relive Max’s formative moments, racing success and explore what the future holds for this young talent. for me it was an enjoyable book to read because it gave me a big inside's max personal life and trough the juniors ranks while keeping it not to complicated. It hinted that while Frans had always made out that his family were close-knit, it was not always the case.
