Born into motorsport, Max Verstappen started karting aged four and in 2015 became the youngest driver ever to race in F1, less than six months after his 17th birthday. Following his first Grand Prix victory in 2016, he quickly established himself as a future World Champion and by 2021 he achieved it. Like a true Dutch Master, he has brought fresh artistry into F1 and made this most glamorous of sports even more exciting. 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.

• Early days: nurtured by racing driver father Jos, Max had a long apprenticeship in karting, from a first title in Belgium in 2006 to the climax in 2013 as World KZ Champion in the top KZ1 category.

• 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.

• The fairytale begins: after débuting in Australia, his full F1 season with Toro Rosso in 2015 brought ten points-scoring finishes — and much acclaim.

• Transfer to Red Bull: Max was elevated to the ‘senior’ team for the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix — and almost miraculously became F1’s youngest ever winner first time out.

• F1 consolidation: ever-growing maturity in each of the next three seasons brought seven more F1 victories, culminating in Honda-powered 2019 delivering third place in the championship standings.

• The championship beckons: following pandemic-afflicted 2020, Max toppled Lewis Hamilton from his throne after a controversial season finale.

• Expert assessments: insights from three-time World Champion Sir Jackie Stewart and leading journalists Peter Windsor and Will Buxton.

“André Hoogeboom not only knows his stuff but, unlike some Max writers, knows the Verstappens, too... an enlightening, inspiring and enthralling read.”

“Hoogeboom excels when recapping the very early days for Verstappen, as Max criss-crossed Europe with his father Jos to dominate the karting scene.”

“Well-written and superbly researched, and packed with quotes from the great and the good in the top tier of racing.”

“Hoogeboom does a fine job in covering the key incidents, pivotal moments, and getting behind-the-scenes… For the Verstappen fan there is much to enjoy.”

“The standard of translation from the original Dutch is perfect, and the book reads more fluently than several F1 biographies I’ve endured in recent years... a robust, well-designed, and excellently illustrated hardback.”

“Beautifully written, beautifully put together.”
