During this time, he logged miles on the track and on the simulator to help develop and refine the Penske EV-3 powertrain package. A win at the Noisring in his 2015 rookie campaign foreshadowed his formidable talent, which would earn him four victories and a runner-up finish in the Drivers’ Championship in the 2016 season, and a third-place finish in the 2017 FIA Formula 3 European Drivers’ Championship. At just 20 years of age, Max shows tremendous potential as a racing driver.
