Max Verstappen created ripples in the world of Formula One even before he drove an F1 car. Immensely gifted - he has been compared to the legendary Ayrton Senna - Verstappen was in demand from top teams, Mercedes and Red Bull, to be a part of their respective driver programmes! Verstappen - at the tender age of 16 - signed for Red Bull, and drove for Toro Rosso for 2015. Despite his limited experience, he stood out and was roped in to drive for Red Bull when the first opportunity arose in 2016. He didn't disappoint. He has taken over the records set by Sebastian Vettel to become the youngest ever podium finisher, to set a fastest lap, lead a lap and even win, that too in his first race in a Red Bull! His greatest asset is perhaps his bravado to pull off the most outrageous overtaking moves cleanly, albeit sometimes a bit pushy. He may be young but he's as mature as a veteran racer out on track. Only greater things can be expected from him, but with the burden of expectation now feeling heavier than ever, it will be interesting to see how he deals with it and whether he lives up to it at all.
