Max Verstappen Set to Become Youngest F1 Driver

Sixteen-year-old Max Verstappen will become the youngest driver in Formula One history next season after being unveiled as Toro Rosso's new signing. The Dutch teenager, son of ex-F1 driver Jos Verstappen, will partner Daniil Kvyat in the Red Bull feeder team with Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne. Verstappen, who turns 17 next month, will beat the age record currently held by Spain's Jaime Alguersuari, who was 19 years and 125 days when he made his debut in 1990. Verstappen is following the path of four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo, who were also members of the Red Bull Junior Team.
