As you can guess, being only eighteen years old, he is definitely the youngest winner of Formula 1 Grand Prix race ever. This is a world’s record.

To be exact, he won the race at the age of 18 years and 228 days. He broke the previous record set by the former Formula 1 world champion, Sebastian Vettel.

In 2008, Vettel wrote the youngest race winner record at the age of 21 years and 73 days. It seems like the winners only get younger and younger than ever!

This means Max Verstappen has a lot to come. The previous record holder became the world champion. Max has the same chance. He is a great driver after all.
