Todt is grateful: “Verstappen is very important for Formula 1”

The Max Verstappen madness has not only stayed within the borders of the Netherlands, but has also spread worldwide. This has not gone unnoticed Jean Todt, and he is very grateful for the Dutch driver. According to him, Verstappen is very important for Formula 1.

That the Red Bull driver has sparked the Formula 1 madness in our little country is quite an understatement. It is not without reason that the royal class has decided to return to Zandvoort after 35 (next year 36). Everywhere Verstappen goes, an orange sea can be found and that only has a positive effect on the sport. It is therefore extra sour that the Dutch Grand Prix had to be canceled this year, but all hope is pinned on next season. The FIA ​​president also hopes that the Netherlands can offer a female version of Verstappen.

“Max is very important to the sport,” Todt admits opposite The Telegraph. ‘He has a strong personality. It’s good to have leaders like that in any sport. Max grew up in this world, was four years old when he started karting, has good genes and is extremely talented. “The arrival of the driver has brought about a few things. President was uncomfortable with the fact that a 17-year-old could race Formula 1 but couldn’t drive himself to the track, so the rule now is: “If you want a super license to get into Formula 1 , you must have a driver’s license. “

Todt continues his story: “The Netherlands has about eight million inhabitants, right?” He apologizes when he hears that our country has seventeen million inhabitants, but can still make his point: “It’s about the education and the basis, not about the population.” He hopes that many new talents will find their way to Formula 1, and they do not have to be of the male gender. “We need more women! I hope the Netherlands will produce another Max Verstappen, but with a skirt on,” said the French.
