Long evening

 

 

It was a coming and going of champions from the most diverse motorsport classes. At the end of the long evening – after dozens of drivers had been put in the limelight – a beaming Max Verstappen was presented with the beautiful trophy by FIA president Jean Todt.

 

 

In the presence of girlfriend Kelly and team boss Christian Horner, Verstappen was asked how it sounds to be a champion? “My life goal has been achieved! Everything that comes next is a bonus. I will stay in F1 for a few more years, mind you.

 

 

I saw the images of me and my dad, travelling around Europe. And then now being successful in F1…. I’m so happy to be able to celebrate with my friends and family. It’s been amazing. I’ve enjoyed the season immensely. Lewis and I pushed each other to the limit, sometimes over it. But we have a lot of respect for each other. I can’t wait for next year.”

 

De Vries also receives award

In the wake of Verstappen, Nyck de Vries was also honored. He became Formula E champion this season. In his acceptance speech, the Friesian said it was a rollercoaster season, with some setbacks, and that he is very proud to be in Paris.
