Jos Verstappen beats up own father – reports

Max Verstappen’s famous father has reportedly had an eventful few days between the Hungarian and German grands prix.

De Telegraaf, a Dutch newspaper, reports that the former Benetton and Minardi driver physically attacked his own father, Max’s grandfather Frans Verstappen.

The report said the incident happened shortly after the Budapest race last Sunday, in Jos’ hometown of Montford, The Netherlands.

De Telegraaf said Frans Verstappen filed a complaint with the police.

“We’ve seen before that Jos has loose hands but this was the limit,” Frans, showing multiple wounds and bruises on his body and head, is quoted as saying.

“Jos is very bad tempered,” he added.

Max and Jos’ manager Raymond Vermeulen said the incident was a “private matter”.

Later, Limburg broadcaster L1 reported that Frans had withdrawn the complaint because “it’s just a private matter between myself and Jos.

“I want to keep it between ourselves,” he added.
