Max Verstappen’s colossal net worth revealed as he makes it on to Dutch rich list

Max Verstappen is on a Red Bull contract worth a reported £40 million per year, until 2027.

It appears that newly crowned double World Champion Max Verstappen is winning both on and off the circuit, as the 25-year-old was announced on the newest The Netherlands-rich list, with the Red Bull star coming in at 500th place.

The list, created by Dutch magazine Quote, features the 500 richest people in the country, meaning that Verstappen is currently bottom of what is actually a pretty good list to be bottom of!

According to the magazine, the Dutchman is currently worth €120 million, a figure which is highly likely to further increase given his relentless success on the circuit.

Last weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix saw Verstappen claim a record-breaking 14th win of the championship, meaning he officially eclipsed Michael Schumacher’s and Sebastian Vettel’s joint record of 13 wins in a year, which was the previous benchmark.

Given that there are still two races remaining this season, Verstappen could push the record to 16 wins in a season, something that has in fairness been made possible due to the continuously expanding calendar.

Verstappen himself has previously admitted that it’s easier for drivers these days to break those types of records, given that there were rarely more than 18 rounds in the season in Schumacher’s era, compared to this season’s 22.

Regardless, his victory at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez was also his fourth at that venue alone, cementing his place as one of the greatest drivers of all-time.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner watched on in Mexico with amazement and even explained after the race that Verstappen’s talent is “something very special”.

“We are actually witnessing something very special,” Horner said following Verstappen’s victory in Mexico.

“And I sometimes think that his achievements perhaps don’t receive the plaudits that they should.”

Verstappen wasn’t the only F1-related figure on the list, as Prince Bernhard, co-owner of Zandvoort, which hosts the Dutch Grand Prix, came 481st on the list.

Bernard is worth a reported €125 million, a sum likely to be matched by Verstappen in no time at all.

The 25-year-old is understandably raking it in, given that his base salary at Red Bull is a reported £40 million per year.

He’s set to receive at least this every year until 2027, when his lucrative deal with the Austrians expires.
