Jos Verstappen could help another young driver

Max Verstappen's father is not ruling out trying to help another youngster make his big mark on Formula 1.

Former F1 driver Jos Verstappen masterminded his teenage son's meteoric rise to prominence, but now admits to missing young Max.

"There are times when I am at home and Max is in Monaco and I've thought 'Damn, it's really nice what has happened to him', but for years - day and night - we did everything together," Jos told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

"And then he left suddenly. It's a natural process, I know that, but when we entered motor sport together, I didn't think it would go so fast.

"I miss him. It's that simple."

However, Jos admits that it is also "nice" to have more time for himself, but is also not ruling out returning to the fray with another promising young talent.

"I do think about it," said the Dutchman. "I've even talked about it with Helmut Marko, who knows that I have a lot of contacts in the lower racing classes."

The 2017 world championship begins this Sunday in Melbourne.
