Max Verstappen says that his father Jos no longer works with young Red Bull drivers.

Max Verstappen has revealed that his father Jos no longer works with young Red Bull drivers.

Over a year ago, former Formula 1 driver Jos Verstappen started working with the energy drink company to identify and groom young talent in junior categories like karting and F3.

However, when asked by Austria's Laola1 if his father is still a Red Bull scout, Max answered: "No, not so much anymore.

"He did it last year because he was working with a Dutch guy, but he is no longer in the Red Bull junior team.

"Maybe he will do it again but my father also has his family and not so much time to go to other races."

Verstappen junior is currently sixth in the driver standings.
