- Max is the son of former F1 driver Jos, who incidentally last drove in the sport with Minardi, which is now Toro Rosso.
- Max is very likely to remain as the youngest-ever driver to race in F1, after the FIA changed super licence rules to ensure under-18 drivers don't get into the sport.
- Max's mother Sophie Kumpen was a successful kart driver, grandfather Paul Kumpen raced GT cars, and uncle Anthony Kumpen has raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
- At 17 years and 3 days, he became the youngest ever to take part in a Grand Prix weekend when he drove a Toro Rosso in FP1 during the 2014 Japanese GP.
- He earned his F1 super license when he couldn't even apply for a road car license
Age is just a number and it's on the track where you have to show.
