Kelly Piquet praises Max Verstappen for being 'modest' and 'consistent'
Kelly Piquet has been with Max Verstappen for three years now. The Dutchman has won two world championships since they started dating and is well on his way to winning his third.
In an interview with Vogue Magazine Netherlands at the end of 2022, Piquet spoke in glowing terms about Verstappen.
"He remains so modest, he stands firmly with both feet on the ground. He's shown everyone that he really deserves it: he's the driver who makes the fewest mistakes on the racetrack right now, he's very consistent. He is confident and not interested in fame or material things," she said.
Currently, Max Verstappen is leading the 2023 drivers' championship table with 400 points.
