Interview

Verstappen exclusive: Why F1’s champion isn’t fazed by Silverstone return

Max Verstappen is the world’s number one racing driver… and he’s determined to keep it that way. Speaking exclusively to GP Racing's OLEG KARPOV, the Red Bull driver explains why he’s relishing the 2022 championship battle with Charles Leclerc – and why he’s not worried about returning to Silverstone, the scene of the biggest accident of his career last year

When it comes to a world champion’s itinerary, every minute is accounted for. GP Racing’s interview with Max Verstappen in Barcelona is scheduled for right after his Spanish TV appearance, and we watch as he’s invited onto the roof of Red Bull’s Energy Station to meet Sergi Roberto of the world-renowned local football team. Roberto presents the 24-year-old – an FC Barcelona fan – with a jersey bearing the name ‘Verstappen’ across the shoulders.

The Dutchman is genuinely impressed. His PR assistant swiftly passes on a signed Red Bull-branded polo shirt as the return gift.
