The famous magazine Time communicated its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Among this slew of equally striking celebrities, we find a motorsport driver. A boy who drives cars all year round, who only lives for it and who has won “only” 19 of the 22 races he has competed in 2023. He has also won a small championship that we calls Formula 1. His name is unknown to the general public, it is Max Verstappen.

No more jokes... The Dutchman didn't steal his place in this list. He wiped out all competition in 2023, which allowed him to very easily win his third world crown. In addition to that, Super Max has broken some records, and not the least: the greatest number of victories in a season in F1, the greatest number of consecutive victories, the most hat tricks in a year... This is not not for nothing was he nominated in the category of “Titans”.

Sean Gregory, the Time correspondent who chose Max Verstappen, justifies his choice simply by the fact that the driver Red Bull is currently the strongest in a growing sport.

“Verstappen is so confident behind the wheel that during a race he was able to keep an eye on the screens around the track to follow the battle going on behind him. Fans dressed in orange gather at his races to cheer him on, while others, dressed in the uniforms of rival teams like Ferrari et Mercedes, boo him on the podium. The Formula 1 business, estimated at $3,2 billion and growing 25% in 2023, is now focused on a singular question. Can anyone stop Verstappen and the Red Bull Racing machine? »

Note that Max Verstappen is the third Formula 1 driver to join this famous list. Before him, there was Michael Schumacher 2005 in, and Lewis Hamilton in 2020.
