Red Bull star driver, Max Verstappen has been classified as the next big thing in Formula 1 as many expect him to achieve what Lewis Hamilton has achieved in the past decade. The precocious Verstappen had a very decorated karting career, which caught Red Bull’s eye in 2014. At the tender age of 17, the Dutchman was moved from F3 to F1 during the Australian GP into Toro Rosso.
After he was promoted to the main team mid-season in 2016, the Dutchman did not take too long to justify the decision – winning his debut race, the 2016 Spanish GP, with Red Bull. Verstappen claimed the F1 title in 2021, defeating Lewis Hamilton in one of the most thrilling F1 seasons of all time. He overtook Hamilton on the final lap of the Abu Dhabi GP, as he claimed his maiden F1 title in a season finale that will go down as one of the best in history.
In 2022, he went from strength to strength, dominating the season after some early setbacks. While Charles Leclerc gave him a run for his money early on, he could not keep up with Verstappen. The Dutchman set the record for the most wins in a season, winning 15 out of the 22 races held in the season. This has cemented him, statistically, as one of the best Formula 1 drivers of all time. With 35 victories to his name, he currently sits sixth in the all-time wins table.
With such sporting success comes financial success, and he has now become one of the richest and highest-paid Formula 1 drivers. The details of his current net worth and salary are given below.
