Formula 3 championship runner-up, ADAC Junior Motor Sports Athlete of the Year, German Young Motor Racing Talent of the Year – 2016 was the most successful season in Maximilian Günther’s career.
He is a top competitor and regarded as Germany’s most promising young talent. Max is heading for Formula 1 or the DTM thanks to his outstanding performance both on and off track.
Maximilian’s numerous successes have not escaped the attention of Mercedes-AMG either, who have made him their seventh driver in the Mercedes-AMG Motorsport DTM Team for the 2017 season. Max is also a championship contender in this year’s FIA Formula 3 European Championship, the world’s strongest formula racing series for juniors.
Max is busily notching up a whole string of successes, having taken overall victory in the ADAC Kart Masters, two championship runner-up titles in the Formel ADAC and two overall wins on the prestigious programme run by the Deutsche Post Speed Academy – and there is no end in sight.
