Max Verstappen was denied the chance to hire out a Mercedes high-performance car on holiday because he was bizarrely deemed too young. Verstappen, 26, was keen to take the motor, which has a top speed of 195mph, for a spin around a track in Portugal after booking the circuit during his downtime. Verstappen was instead forced to settle for a less powerful BMW 5 Series. Verstappen’s BMW has a top speed of 155.3mph, a figure that pales in comparison to the 195.7mph the top-of-the-range Mercedes AMG GT can reach. There is, of course, no doubt at all about his driving skills and his experience with powerful cars.
