How Max Verstappen has spent winter break, from holiday with Kelly Piquet, meeting Coulthard and partying with Canelo

MAX VERSTAPPEN has been enjoying a well deserved break since his controversial F1 championship victory in December.

Since his win in Abu Dhabi, aside from defending the nature of his Michael Masi-assisted triumph, he’s spent quality time with his girlfriend, travelled the world and hooked up with some other sporting legends.

He started his break by meeting Formula 1 legend David Coulthard in the sunshine.

Sharing a picture to Instagram, he wrote: “In good company for my first interview as a World Champion.”

Verstappen, 24, then attended the lavish FIA Prize Giving gala just before Christmas alongside glamorous girlfriend Kelly Piquet.

He received the trophy after Mercedes dropped their legal challenge, before spending a very happy Chrimbo at home with his stunning partner.

While over there, Max partied with pound-for-pound boxing king Canelo Alvarez, whipping up a crowd in the process.

Up on stage with the Mexican great, Verstappen shouted: “Let’s f*** s*** up!”

Canelo, 31, then thrilled the crowd further by adding: “Let’s f****** party!”

After returning to Europe things calmed down a little for Verstappen, who then began to ramp up preparations for another long, tough season.

But he has had room for another little holiday in the meantime.

He and Kelly jetted out to Austria in the back end of January for a break.

Kelly, 33, shared a stunning video of the pair taking in beautiful mountainous scenery as they enjoyed a helicopter ride.

After returning to Monaco, Verstappen again built up his season preparations, sharing plenty of content of his gym workouts.

He has also been for runs with a view by the ocean in the principality.

Verstappen will have to be at his best this season, with Lewis Hamilton all but ending retirement talk this week by returning to Mercedes HQ.

The 37-year-old had been off the grid since events in Abu Dhabi, but tweeted ‘I’m back’ over the weekend – sending his fans into a frenzy.
