In recent years the sport of Formula 1 has seen young drivers make their way onto the grid. This year Max Verstappen is planned to make his debut in Australia at the age of 17 Years, 5 Months, 13 Days.

Of the current generation a number of drivers have proven that teenage drivers are capable of establishing themselves with in the sport. The following list of drivers all started their F1 careers while still teenagers, not a bad list!

  • Fernando Alonso
  • Filipe Massa
  • Sebastian Vettel
  • Jaime Alguersuari
  • Daniil Kvyat

Irrespective, the FIA has now deemed that drivers have to be 18 years or older to qualify for a super licence, all drivers in F1 require such a licence. Additionally the driver must have competed in at least 2 full seasons in feeder series.

So lock the name Max Verstappen away for trivia nights as it appears he will have the honour of being the youngest driver to start a Formula 1 race, for eternity.
