Max Verstappen, F1 world champion on Red Bull, talked about his future, setting a limit within which he would like to stop racing. He told: "Traveling a lot isn't healthy. I still enjoy it a lot now, but you have to give up so many things for it.

I've often pointed out that this is the main reason I won't continue racing until I'm 40. It seems absurd why driving a Formula 1 is obviously a dream for many people and it really is. But you are very far from home and from the people you love: there comes a time when you can't stand it anymore.

I definitely want children and if they want to race there won't be any problem. but I would give them a different upbringing than mum and dad did to me. They did everything to push me to run, I'll let my kids decide, they'll have to want it.

If so, it will be important for me to be with them when they will have three-four years, to start laying the foundations.Although it is easy for me to speak now that I don't have them, maybe I will think differently when the time comes in the future.

The victory in Spa was the best. It was really amazing how good everything went for us there. Our car was perfect. Winning the world title was obviously the highlight. The missed party? You don't think about how you became world champion.

What matters is that you have become one. The way doesn't matter. My father and I have always said to each other: it doesn't matter how you win, as long as you win." Max made his Formula 1 debut in 2015 at the wheel of Toro Rosso, before being promoted to Red Bull Racing in mid-2016, a team with which he was Formula 1 world champion in 2021 and 2022.

In 2016, triumphing in the Gran Spanish prize, he became the youngest driver to win a race in the Formula 1 world championship, at just 18 years, 7 months and 15 days. Furthermore, in 2022 he became the driver with the most wins in a season, 15, surpassing the previous record of 13, jointly held by Germans Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel His racing number is 33, but since 2022 he has chosen to use the number 1 as reigning world champion.
