Max Verstappen reveals ruthless dad Jos NEVER told him he’d become F1 champion and instead predicted he’d end up as a BUS DRIVER… with tough love approach seeing the Dutchman once left abandoned at a petrol station aged 15 after a defeat

Max Verstappen has revealed he was told by his father that he’d never be a Formula One champion and that he was only good enough to be a bus driver, in the tough love approach that also saw the Dutchman once abandoned at a petrol station. ‘My Dad never said I was going to be a champion,’ Verstappen Jr told David Coulthard on Channel 4. Of course, when we sat in the van, I wanted to talk to my dad about the incident. My dad said, “stop talking, I don’t want to hear anything, just sit in the back, I don’t want to hear anything about it”. We were about to drive off and then my dad returned with the van and was like: “Get in, but I do not want to hear a word.”
