Max Verstappen owns one of the most badass private jets in Formula 1

Redbull’s Max Verstappen is often referred to as being the “villain’ in Formula 1 and now that we’ve seen his private jet, we’re beginning to see why.

Photos of his private plane have been circling the internet and we can’t get over how badass it looks.

His Falcon 900EX is painted in a grey and orange paint scheme and has looked like this for about a year now.

According to The Sun, Verstappen bought this very plane from Virgin boss Richard Branson in 2020 for €12 million ($13 million).

Then on top of that, Max spends a further $1 million per year just to maintain it. But when you earn more than $50 million a year racing in Formula 1, what does one million really do?

The reason Max is often called the villain of F1 is because he doesn’t enjoy playing the media game, most noticeably in the latest series of Netflix’s Drive to Survive.

If anyone is going to have the best-looking plane in Formula 1, it should probably be Red Bull‘s Verstappen.
