The Crash

Former Formula One star Jos Verstappen, the father of three-time F1 champion Max, was involved in a high-speed crash that left the front of his car wrecked. The crash occurred while Verstappen was warming up for his Spanish rally car debut at the Rally La Nucia. He was driving downhill in a Skoda Fabis RS when he hit a barrier on the side of the road after entering a right-hand bend too fast. The front of the Red Bull sponsored vehicle was heavily damaged, but the metal barrier prevented Verstappen and his co-driver from going off the cliff.

No Injuries

Verstappen's co-driver, Renaud Jamoul, confirmed that both he and Verstappen did not suffer any injuries in the crash. The 51-year-old Verstappen is no stranger to rally cars, having raced in the Belgian Rally Championship and made his World Rally Championship debut in 2022.

A Notable Career

Jos Verstappen started 106 F1 Grand Prix races over a nine-year career. One of the most famous incidents involving him occurred in the 1990s when a fire broke out in the pit crew as petrol sprayed out of the refueling hose and ignited on his car during a pit stop. Verstappen has been a regular presence in the F1 paddock since his son Max became the youngest ever F1 driver at the age of 17 in 2015.

Max Verstappen in the Brazilian Grand Prix

Meanwhile, Max Verstappen is set to compete in the F1 Brazilian Grand Prix next weekend after winning each of the last three races.
