Max Verstappen’s girlfriend is the daughter of an F1 legend and already has a baby with another former driver.
Brazilian model Kelly Piquet, 33, has been in a relationship with Verstappen, 24, since 2020. Her father is Nelson Piquet, the Brazilian who won three F1 world championships and is regarded among the sport’s best ever drivers.
Nelson Piquet won his titles during the 80s and, through his career, drove for Brabham, Williams, Lotus and Benetton. He went on to drive in the Indy 500.
Kelly Piquet’s ex is a former F1 driver
Verstappen is not the first love interest from the F1 paddock of Kelly Piquet’s life. She has a daughter with Daniil Kvyat. Kyvat, a Russian driver, has two spells in F1 between 2014-2016 and 2019-2020 during which he dated Kelly.
“Love always wins,” she posted while attending the wedding of Verstappen’s sister. Verstappen posted a picture of his girlfriend and his mum with the caption: “Happy Mothers Day to these amazing mothers.” Kelly celebrated her boyfriend’s first world title win at the end of the 2021 season at the controversial Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with the caption: “World f***** champion. Just unforgettable.”
