Max Verstappen reveals his affiliation to Germany and speaks German
The 2021 world champion told Auto Bild how his father Jos Verstappen insisted he learn German. The Dutch also share memories of driving on German go-karts from their younger years. During its early years, Germany was one of the few countries where motorists attempted to cross the tracks in the Netherlands.
Recalling the memories of learning German and driving on a German go-kart track, the Dutchman said:
“My father started speaking German with me very early on, mainly on the go-kart track. He wanted it that way, to balance the conversations at home… For example at Feuerbach-Hahn, I think the song doesn’t exist anymore. Then in Ampfing and of course a lot in Kerpen, home of Michael Schumacher. ”
