The last time a rookie won the Macau Grand Prix, Richard Verschoor was seven years old. Let that sink in for a moment. Now he's the only Dutch winner - despite Max Verstappen having raced there - and he did it as an underdog, as it was his MP Motorsport team's first visit to the venue.
In 2016, Verschoor looked like the next Verstappen. Or at least the next driver from Holland capable of reaching Formula 1. In his first season in cars, he took the SMP and Spanish F4 titles, the latter with MP, and he was firmly in Red Bull's good books.
However, a turbulent season the following year delivered ninth in the Formula Renault Eurocup with only a solitary podium, third in the Toyota Racing Series and ninth in the Eurocup Northern European Championship. Hardly a year worthy of a Red Bull junior - and Red Bull agreed. He was added to the list of victims of motorsport's most fierce natural selection process, the energy drink giant's youth programme.
