After only four races in the 2016 F1 Season, Max Verstappen changed from Scuderia Toro Rosso to join Red Bull Racing and race alongside Daniel Ricciardo. In his very first Grand Prix for the team, in Barcelona Spain, he defied the odds and, under relentless pressure from 2007 Formula One world champion Kimi Räikkönen in second place, took an epic maiden victory. Max Verstappen wasn't finished there however, a lot more was there to come.
A further six podium finishes, including the standout drive of the season in rain-lashed Brazil, landed Max fifth overall in the 2016 Formula One World Championship and confirmed that he's not only the best young talent in F1, but also a very good title contender for the 2017 F1 Season.
