“Papa” Max Verstappen Teaches Kelly Piquet’s Daughter an Invaluable Skill as Fans Adore “Cutest” Family Montage

Published 03/11/2023, 7:00 AM EST

Kelly Piquet’s daughter, Penelope, has the richest lineage of F1. Her grandfather, Nelson Piquet, was the triple world champion, and her ‘stepdad’ Max Verstappen, heading on to become one. Her father, Daniil Kvyat, was a Formula 1 racer himself and so were her uncles. With a legacy like that, motoring skills come to you sooner rather than later. And as Red Bull established sheer dominance over the Bahrain GP weekend, vacation came early for Max Verstappen. And he used his leisure time to pass on his dexterity.

Kelly Piquet began dating Verstappen somewhere around the end of 2020. The two later welcomed the New Year together, announcing to the world that they were in love and the couple has been inseparable ever since. From running into the Brazilian model’s arms after becoming a champion to always vacationing together. The latest destination of fun-filled adventure added to their tally in Bahrain. Interestingly, Verstappen stepped in to teach Baby P a motoring skill during their stay.

A photograph shows the family in their racing gear and the next one shows a tiny double-seater Go Kart going around the track. Fans were quick to jump to the conclusion that Daddy Max was fulfilling his duties to the fullest.

From special Dinners in the desert to boat rides to celebrating her daughter’s first, Piquet’s glimpse of her time in Bahrain can make some envious. But that probably is the best way to celebrate the Red Bull clan’s top-class season opener.
