Max Verstappen elected best CRG driver of the last 20 years Read more

The Contest on CRG social channels (Facebook and Instagram) to elect the best CRG driver from 2000 to today (the last 20 years) has been very successful. In the end, however, the verdict was unequivocal: Max Verstappen is considered the strongest and most loved driver. The Dutchman scored 983 points and prevailed both in the votes obtained by Facebook and on Instagram. It should be remembered that Verstappen was recently elected by the sector press as the strongest Kart driver of the last 10 years and this further recognition underlines once again how strong and complete he is considered. Behind him, Paolo De Conto ranked with 764 points, a true recent icon of karting, a driver who has given the CRG brand dozens of international successes and who has only retired from racing earlier this season. Lewis Hamilton climbed the 3rd step of the podium, perhaps the most popular F1 driver that CRG has launched at the top of Motorsport. In the top 5 also Jonathan Thonon, 4th with 686 points and still firmly in the memory of Karting enthusiasts, while in 5th place was Robert Kubica (522 points), for which his fan club also moved en masse in the voting by sharing the Contest on their social pages.
