Time flies. Exactly eight years ago, Max Verstappen made his official Formula 1 debut during the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne. He did it in the starting number 33 for Scuderia Toro Rosso. At that time he did not reach the end point. Verstappen was ninth when the car stopped with engine trouble. The latter happened to him often that seasonā€¦
