We spoke about the upcoming star that could be Max Verstappen. The son of former F1 driver Jos Verstappen has now been signed to the Red Bull junior team with immediate effect:
“We are very pleased to announce that Max Verstappen has accepted our invitation to join the Red Bull Junior Team,” said a statement from Red Bull.
“This is effective immediately and the 16-year-old will continue his Formula 3 campaign at the Nurburgring this weekend as a Red Bull Junior.”
Max won seven races in his first year in the Formula 3 European championship and caught the eye of several teams including Mercedes and Red Bull. Here’s why I like this kid already:
“I like Spa-Francorchamps because it is a high speed circuit with a lot fast corners, which are always my favorite. It is also a challenging and very fluent track and therefore great to drive.”
You need no further endorsement than a guy who loves Spa the best…makes two of us.
