Max Verstappen stands firm with Red Bull amid father's criticism, deems departure scenario 'crazy'

Posted : 07 March 2024

Triple world champion Max Verstappen expressed support for his outspoken father, Jos Verstappen, who recently criticized Red Bull boss Christian Horner. However, Max stated that it would take something "crazy" for him to consider leaving Red Bull at the end of the season.


Jos Verstappen's comments came amid allegations against Horner, which an independent barrister later cleared him of. Despite his father's remarks triggering concerns about Max exploring other options for the 2025 season, the Dutch driver emphasized his focus on racing and downplayed the likelihood of leaving Red Bull, stating that "things must go really crazy."


With a vacancy at Mercedes due to Lewis Hamilton's surprising move to Ferrari in 2025, Max Verstappen underscored his commitment to Red Bull and the importance of concentrating on the driving aspect. He emphasized the significance of avoiding distractions for the team's success.


Max acknowledged his father's outspoken nature, noting their close relationship and daily communication. Despite the controversy stirred by Jos Verstappen's comments, Max maintained his primary focus on the upcoming Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, stating that leaving Red Bull was not the target for everyone unless circumstances took a "really crazy" turn.


Red Bull, known for its dominant performance in the previous season, winning 21 out of 22 races, is expected to remain a strong contender. Max Verstappen, who won 19 of those races, initiated the current season with a notable victory in Bahrain. Despite the family dynamics adding a layer of intrigue, Max Verstappen remains committed to his racing goals and downplays the possibility of a dramatic departure from Red Bull.
