If you missed last season’s WhatsApp chats, check out some of them here:
We also caught up with the person who sat next to Max Verstappen in economy class. They said,
“When I saw him come through that class-dividing curtain, I kicked my kid into the aisle seat and begged for Max to come sit next to me. I said, “Please, please m’Lord”, and patted the seat like an eager weirdo.He just shrugged and sat down.
Now, I know this would be odd in a normal context, you know, a 43-year old bloke like me begging a 19-year old boy to sit next to him, but he’s a star! I noticed as the flight took off, along with my raging stalk-on, that despite what I read about him in the press, he’s actually a mortal? There was one moment I will never forget. He sneezed into a tissue and it fell to the floor and I managed to sneak it into my pocket. It’s the pride and joy of my mantlepiece today, and I’ll never forget that Max is a human again.”
