The three-time world champion, Max Verstappen, continues to make waves in the world of Formula 1. Remarkably, when he last entered the Chinese Grand Prix, he had no championship titles and only a handful of race wins to his name. However, after five years, when Formula 1 revisited the Chinese Grand Prix, the entire landscape had changed, with Max boasting three championship titles and over 50 race wins.

In a recent interview, when asked about his plans for his son to become a race car driver, the three-time world champion stunned everyone with his response. Max Verstappen said, “No, i’d advise them not to be a driver. Ofcourse, if he or she wants to race, and I see the potential, I would go for it, like my dad did. But I would never actively push.. You shouldn’t push your kids into something you like, they need to come to you..”

“If you push your child into something, eventually they might not like it as much and maybe doesn’t become determined enough to make it, and all the effort is for nothing.”

Max Verstappen, the talented Dutch Formula 1 driver, has been making headlines both on and off the track. But it’s not just Max who’s been in the spotlight—his father, Jos Verstappen, recently shared his thoughts on the Red Bull team environment and its impact on the team’s dynamics.

At the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix, Jos Verstappen publicly criticized Red Bull team principal Christian Horner. He claimed that the situation within the team was “not good” and that it was “driving people apart.” These comments came after accusations of inappropriate behavior by Horner toward a female colleague. An internal investigation by Red Bull’s board dismissed the complaint, but an anonymous email with leaked messages added fuel to the fire.
