Max Verstappen Parents  ( Mother and Father )

Max Emilian Verstappen was born in Hasselt, Belgium, on September 30, 1997, to Jos Verstappen and Sophie Kumpen. He has a younger sister named Victoria. When Verstappen’s parents divorced when he was a child, he moved in with his father while his sister Victoria moved in with their mother.

His father is a former Formula One driver from the Netherlands, his Belgian mother raced karts, and his first cousin once removed, Anthony Kumpen, competed in endurance racing and is a two-time NASCAR Whelen Euro Series winner who is now the team manager for PK Carsport in the Euro Series.

Despite having a Belgian mother, being born in Belgium, and residing in Bree, Belgium, Verstappen chose to compete with a Dutch racing license because he “feels more Dutch,” having spent more time with his father than with his mother due to his karting activities, and having grown up in Maaseik, a Belgian town near the Dutch border, where he was always surrounded by Dutch people.

In 2015, Verstappen stated: “I only stayed in Belgium at night because I travelled to the Netherlands during the day to visit my friends. That is how I feel because I was raised as a Dutch person.”He raced in Formula One for more than a season before turning 18 and getting his driver’s license.Verstappen relocated to Monaco the next day, in October 2015, and has been living there ever since, claiming it was not for tax reasons.

Verstappen enjoys sim racing in his spare time. Verstappen, who has competed in numerous sim racing competitions, claims that it helps him prepare for real-life racing by keeping him ′′ready to go′′. Verstappen is a member of the global sim racing squad Team Redline.In November 2020, Verstappen bought a Dassault Falcon 900EX aircraft from Virgin Galactic. Exxaero operates the aircraft, which has the registration PH-DTF.
