At the age of 24, Dutch Max Verstappen is a Formula 1 idol who has already set several records in the most important motorsport series, but the greatest of all is having become champion.
The European driver was the first Dutchman to win a Grand Prix in 2016, which was a product of his fearless driving that characterizes him and that augurs an even brighter future for him.
Remarkably, Verstappen could have been a Mercedes driver at the time, but he opted to sign with Red Bull in 2014 and although the latter has dominated F1, the Dutchman has followed closely in its wake.
The success achieved by Max during his seven years in the premier class of motorsport has allowed him to amass one of the most significant fortunes for drivers in his category.
Financial experts estimate that his salary alone as a Red Bull driver has earned him more than $60 million dollars.
Currently, with his team, the Dutchman earns $25 million per season.
In addition, he is one of the most recognizable faces on the F1 circuit, which has generated several sponsorship deals with million-dollar earnings.
Thus, Max’s image often appears in advertisements for Jumbo Supermarkets, while he is also linked to firms such as Tag Heuer, Ziggo and Exact.
As if this were not enough, the young pilot also has agreements with other smaller companies. However, the exact details of what he earns from these deals are not available.
Off the track, Max Verstappen is in a relationship with the daughter of former F1 star Nelson Piquet, Kelly Piquet, who works as a columnist and model.
