20 year old Max Verstappen triumphed for the first time in 2017 at today’s race at Sepang, Malaysia.
After a season of bad luck and mechanical woes, this win was a huge relief for the Dutchman.
5 years ago, Max won another big event. The 2012 Florida karting championships, for Team Intrepid.
While Max may not have exactly been an underprivileged driver who struggled his way to F1, he started karting when he was 4, and his father was a Formula One driver himself, it’s always nice to see a fellow Intrepid driver do well.
