Now I’m just saying, but is this move by Max Verstappen just a little bit of “I’ll do what I want to do”?
Do you think the bosses at Red Bull Racing, or more so, the sponsors of Red Bull, Renault and Nissan, will be happy with their rising star opting for a Volkswagen owned Porsche? And whilst it’s probably every 18 year old’s dream to own a car as good as a Porsche GT3 RS, and even at $400,000 (US) it’s a lot cheaper than he’d pay for it if he could ever buy it here, is it a good career move?
MAJOR PURCHASE NEEDED OK FROM HIS MANAGER AND HIS FATHER JOS
Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen has toasted the early success of his meteoric Formula 1 career with an extravagant purchase — but only with his father’s OK.
The 18-year-old Dutchman continued his impressive rise to F1 stardom by collecting the Trofeo Lorenzo Bandini award in Italy. Earlier winners were champions Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton.
“I am really honored. This trophy is a great recognition,” Verstappen said.
Verstappen is 29 races into his F1 career. He earned his first victory earlier this season in Spain, and he is coming off back-to-back runner-up finishes in Austria and Great Britain.
Blick, a Swiss newspaper, claims that Verstappen is F1’s newest millionaire, having won big with his high-profile move from Toro Rosso to Red Bull this year. The report said Verstappen has celebrated his success by buying a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, which costs almost $400,000.
But Blick quoted Max’s father Jos as saying the youngster needed the OK for the extravagant purchase from both dad and his manager.
“If Max wants to buy something big, he must get permission from us first. Like now with his private car,” Jos Verstappen said. “But Max is very sensible on normal roads.”

Every article I write is targeted at providing as much information for car owners and prospective car buyers.
Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to experts. Am I an expert? I’ve been in the car business for over 38 years, and while there are areas where I’ll reach out to friends and acquaintances for advice, I’ve got a pretty good grasp of most aspects of the business. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – Car Doctor, Car Professor or The Car Guy, but whenever someone wants some sensible advice, they call me.
I don’t charge for advice, whether it’s on the phone, via email or face to face. I’m happy to provide my expertise whenever I can. So if you want to chat to The Car Guru, get in touch.
I have access to good quality cars – you can see them on Cars Guide. Just click here [Cars Guide] to view our current stock of vehicles.

www.genuinespares.com.au. This is an online spare parts store for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Volkswagen and Isuzu Ute. I’ve got thousands of mechanical and panel parts plus Mopar (Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa) T-Shirts, tyres, and alloy wheels as well. If you’re looking for a hard to get replacement part for any of these brands, or you just want to get a better price than retail on any car brand, let me know. And you won’t pay inflated replacement parts prices either. I’ve priced my stock at a discounted value to compete with the USA and Europe spare parts prices but with local delivery charges
We’re local agents for Williams Paint and Interior Protection as well as AutoGard and CleanGard car products and SunX window tinting. The Same story applies. This is an area that car dealers want to make an amazing amount of profit – up to 100% in some cases. Don’t get ripped off by the franchise car dealers – check us out for a local competitive price on car protection products, window tinting, and engine products.
I’m pleased to advise that in 2015 I was awarded the franchise for 1800Approved Finance. As a local finance company, we’re able to provide a better level of service than the local car dealers as well as pretty competitive rates. SO before you sign on the dotted line, let us compare rates on finance and insurance for you – no obligation. If you’re looking for finance for a new or used car, or any other worthwhile purpose, our company can assist – even if you’ve had some troubling financial issues.
