Heroes Magazine Max Verstappen
For once in the chair of editor-in-chief: Formula One world champion, Red Bull Racing driver and sim racing legend Max Verstappen.
I’ve curated this special edition of The Red Bulletin to share the story of my life with my fans – or at least the story so far. The world title was won on the final lap of last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, but it took 20 years of hard work and sacrifice to get to that point. So
after winning the Formula One World Championship, I wanted to celebrate and look back on the journey here.
It’s easy to talk about sport or what you do for a living, but not so easy to talk about
yourself, which is why I’ve asked people from the close team of family and friends
who shared that journey to speak about me. They include my mother and father and our
great family friend Richard Pex.Their support, advice and knowledge has brought me through karting to F3 and – shortly after – to F1. That was just the first chapter of my story, because once I was in F1, I was helped by my mentor Dr Helmut Marko and by my team members, like my brilliant race engineer Gianpiero Lambiase.
And it’s not all work. Most people know I’m a keen gamer and enjoy sim racing, so make sure you meet Atze Kerkhof from Team Redline and check out my tips on the best things to
do in Monte Carlo.
So now that I’ve reached this amazing milestone, what happens next? Well, that’s for another magazine!
