Max Verstappen comes across as a man who only lives for racing. But after five o’clock, Max apparently turns into a party animal.
After a good result in a race, Max has said it himself: a party well into the wee hours afterwards does not necessarily have to be done by him. He prefers to board the private jet to get home or to the next destination as soon as possible. For example, we had the impression that Max is a bit of a cozy homebody, who prefers to hang out with good friends and family than with unknown other party animals. But according to someone who knows, that image can be thrown in the trash.
Nico Hülkenberg, as an adopted Dutchman, despite the age difference, often used to work for the same teams as Max, reveals during a podcast with GQ namely that Max secretly goes really hard in that club:
Max doesn’t leave anything on the table, not on the court, but also not in the club. I have known Max and Jos for a long time and always spoke Dutch to them. Max accelerates on all fronts. He lives by the motto ‘work hard, play hard’. He also allows himself some fun after a victory and then celebrates it well. A bit like it was in the past [van de sport] went and as it should be.
Nico Hülkenberg secretly wants to be a Dutchman
Who would have thought that. So Max Emilian does go completely loose from time to time. Not only on the track, but also next to it. Hülkenberg also thinks Max is a really nice pear:
He doesn’t share much about his private life, but he’s a really laid back guy, authentic, direct, I get along very well with him.
Nico Hülkenberg already feels a bit like Max ‘teammate
The only thing Hülkenberg just doesn’t dare to do in this unadulterated hymn is bombing Verstappen to better than Hamilton. The latter is also very good according to him:
Hamilton just always delivers. Whether it is dry, snowing or raining. He is always there to pick up the points. That’s what racing is all about, getting out of it weekend after weekend. And especially when it counts. Lewis is simply a killer. The man is a machine.
Nico Hülkenberg actually likes everyone except Magnussen
Anyway, are you a party animal too? Let us know, in the comments!
“A bit like it used to be in the past [van de sport] went and as it should be ”
This sounds like a euphemism for a night at the whores.1
