There are some advantages of being an F1 driver and Max Verstappen has proven it once again. Now, it seems that the Dutchman is set to receive three different Aston Martins as company cars in the near future, courtesy Red Bull.
Verstappen currently gets around in an Aston Martin DB11. But he will soon be swapping that for a brand-new 2018 Vantage, which sells for around 200,000 pounds.
“I’ve driven it around on the track, it’s very fun,” the 21-year-old told Top Gear magazine.
In a year’s time, he’ll be swapping that Aston in yet again. This time he will be the proud owner of a DBS Superleggera. The Superleggera retails for around 350.000 pounds.
“That has to be my favourite from the three cars. It handles well and has a lot of horsepower, I was impressed when I got to test drive it in England.”
However, the perks of being a Red Bull Formula One driver does not end there. The Dutchman will get yet another upgrade after a year of the DBS to a hypercar. To be precise, he will soon be piloting Adrian Newey’s brainchild, the Aston Martin Valkyrie.
That one will retail for around two and a half million pounds. “Aston are busy testing it right now, so I can’t say when it’ll be out. We’ll see when it’s time.”
In the meantime, Verstappen will be sticking to his soon-to-be revealed Red Bull RB15. He will be partnered by Toro Rosso graduate, Pierre Gasly. The Frenchman earned his promotion in the wake of Daniel Ricciardo leaving for Renault. All the teams are fairly excited for the coming season. Already, the Rich Energy Haas F1 has launched their 2019 challenger. Now, Toro Rosso and Williams are set to launch their own cars today.
