Max Verstappen, the mark of speed

- From Kart to F1
Today it is easy to give space to a new F1 world champion, thanks to his exploits, has brought fans closer to F1.

The Dutch driver, (son of Jos who raced in F1, and his mother Sophie Kumpen who left her mark already in 1989 at the karting world championship in Zaragoza in Spain to later win the Margutti on the Parma track), and was also a prodigy in karting; in fact, none of the drivers in F1 today and yesteryear had ever managed to conquer 3 CIK-FIA titles (including the World championship) and at only 16 years of age. Like Jorrit Pex, Max was also formed with the Rotax Max, in 2013, and therefore the subject of analysis of our special report, one who amazed everyone for his competitive edge, going to win his first title: the European KZ and then the KF, to then end with the conquest of the KZ world championship again with Crg / Tm. A talent confirmed also in Formula and, precisely because of his so dizzying rise, the FIA had to invent a clause to allow Max, not yet of age (he would have turned 18 in September 2015), to accept his registration to the 2015 F1 World Championship with Scuderia Toro Rosso, thus becoming the youngest F1 driver in history.
