Of course, winning an F1 title is always special, but the fact that Verstappen would be defeating a dominant driver like Hamilton in the process, only glorifies his achievement. Hence, if the Dutchman does manage to secure the title in Abu Dhabi, he has a surprise in store, more like a ‘live’ gift from his world-famous Dutch friend.

Martin Garrix and Max Verstappen have been good friends for a long time, with the DJ even showing up as a guest in Verstappen’s side of the garage back in 2017 at Yas Marina.

Max Verstappen has a gift ready

According to De Telegraaf, Martin Garrix, one of the world’s most famous DJ, will be performing on the big podium next to the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi following the grand finale.

However, the Dutchman has a special show lined up if Verstappen wins the championship title. Garrix will reportedly produce a stage show almost immediately after Verstappen clinches the trophy in Abu Dhabi. But, if in case Hamilton goes on to win the championship instead, no Garrix show for the fans.
