Max Verstappen Net Worth
The European driver was the first Dutchman to win a Grand Prix in 2016, which was a product of his fearless driving that characterizes him and that augurs an even brighter future for him.
Remarkably, Verstappen could have been a Mercedes driver at the time, but he opted to sign with Red Bull in 2014 and although the latter has dominated F1, the Dutchman has followed closely in its wake.
The success achieved by Max during his seven years in the premier class of motorsport has allowed him to amass one of the most significant fortunes for drivers in his category.
Financial experts estimate that his salary alone as a Red Bull driver has earned him more than $60 million dollars.

At the KF3 World Cup, Verstappen finished second to Alexander Albon(his eventual future teammate in Formula One at Red Bull Racing).

In 2014 Max Verstappen would compete in the Formula 3 Championship for Van Amersfoort Racing. He would finish the season 3rd in the championship behind Esteban Ocon and Tom Blomqvist. In the process, he impressed the big bosses enough for him to be selected by the Red Bull Racing junior team.
