Should we call #SpanishGP winner ‘the boy’?

by on May 16, 2016

The news is rightly heralding Max Verstappen’s victory in the Spanish Grand Prix as an amazing feat of driving, albeit one that was probably aided by the crash between Rosberg and Hamilton.

But @BBCsport seemed to want to focus on his age over and above his achievements: first calling him “the boy” and then “the teenager” – although interestingly this morning I can’t find the tweet featuring the first of those terms.

Yes he is the youngest ever winner and yes its a fantastic achievement but lets focus on his driving ability and not brand him as a kid – he is an adult after all.
