After a year brimmed with records in 2016, Max’ performance in 2017 was once again fuel for some remarkable statistics.
In 2017 Max was twice victorious, bringing his total to three Formula 1-wins. With that the youngster has won as many Grands Prix as Mike Hawthorn and Phil Hill, world champions in respectively 1958 and 1961. On his second and third win, Max was younger than the second youngest ever Grand Prix-winner, Sebastian Vettel.
However, Max was in 2017, for the first in time in his career, no longer the youngest driver ever on the grid. Lance Stroll was the recipient of that accolade the past year.
