Red Bull driver Max Verstappen is undoubtedly a highly talented driver and it manifested from an early age. Recently, footage emerged of the Dutch driver, as a 12-year old, taking part in a karting race.

Max Verstappen was somewhere at the back of the pack when the race began, and then the beast was unleashed. The young Dutch driver puled off an overtaking masterclass, scything through the field to eventually win at the northern French track of Ostricourt

Now, a decade later, Max Verstappen has made it into Formula One as one of the most promising drivers. He made his debut for Toro Rosso in 2015 before an unexpected promotion in 2016 to Red Bull, midway through the season.

Since then, he has never looked back and improved greatly as a driver. He bagged a maiden win in his first race as a Red Bull driver in Spain 2016. Verstappen followed it up with four more wins in his entire Red Bull career so far. Now, in 2019, he is the senior driver and team leader ahead of teammate Pierre Gasly.
