Max Verstappen snubbed for Dutch Sports Personality of the Year despite record-breaking F1 seasonThe Dutch public voted a different world champion as their Sports Personality of the Year

MAX VERSTAPPEN missed out on winning Dutch Sports Personality of the Year despite landing the Formula One championship in a record-breaking season. The Red Bull superstar won 19 out of 22 races to win the championship for a third successive year. But the world champion has been overlooked by the Dutch public, who voted cyclist Mathieu van der Poel as their Sports Personality of the Year. Van der Poel topped off his year by winning the Road World Championships in Glasgow, beating two-time Tour de France winner Tadej Pogacar. Van der Poel began his year by winning the Cylco-cross World Championship for a fifth time after defeating long-term rival Wout van Aert, who also finished second behind the Dutchman in Glasgow. Verstappen has been named Dutch Sports Personality the previous two years following his F1 championship wins.
