First of all, we have to admitt one thing: We were not fast enough in our blog-article to the new world champion. Because, even before we could wrote the last sentence, numerous modelcars of the new world champion were already sold out. The demand on the Dutch man was immense the last days, which ck-modelcars also got to feel.
However, we still have many models available from Verstappen's impressive career. For example, his RB15, with which the Red Bull Racing pilot won the Grand Prix of Germany in Hockenheim in 2019. Minichamps dedicated a high-quality scale 1:18 edition to his triumph. The model is limited to only 504 copies and available here (M. Verstappen Red Bull RB15 #33 Winner Germany GP Formula 1 2019 1:18, item number: 110191133).
Same year, same scale and also the same manufacturer: Minichamps has an eye for the highlights of every Formula 1 season, which is why Verstappen's "home win" was released as a model at the Red Bull Ring (M. Verstappen Red Bull RB15 #33 Winner Austria GP Formula 1 2019 1:18, item number: 110190933). Tens of thousands of Dutch fans in the stands cheered their compatriot's triumph at the Austrian Grand Prix.
One year ago, the exceptional talent celebrated his fifth Grand Prix victory. The area was the Mexico City race track. Verstappen had taken the lead from second on the grid and then prevailed against Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen. The model for the victory is available in scale 1:43 from Minichamps (Max Verstappen Red Bull Racing RB14 #33 Winner Mexico GP F1 2018 1:43, item number: 410181933).
The fans can look forward to models from the season 2021 again shortly. The model “Winner Emilia Romagna GP 2021” from Minichamps is already sold out at the manufacturer, but will be available from ck-modelcars from January. Both the scale 1:43 version (item number: 410210133) and 1:18 (110210133) impress with their attention to detail and high quality. This winning vehicle also comes in an exclusive ck-modelcars outer packaging with a folding box. There is both the 1:18 version (limited to 333 pieces, item number: 113210133) and the 1:43 version limited to 444 pieces (413210133).
And because Sergio Perez contributed a large part to the world championship title of his teammate, there will be a matching double-set available soon. Both Red Bull Racing RB16B of the new world champion from the Netherlands and the Mexican will be released by Minichamps in scale 1:43. The exclusive set is just limited to 222 pieces (item number: 413211133).
For all of those, who have asked what Jos Verstappen actually achieved in his Formula 1 career, during the TV-broadcast of Abu Dhabi: The father of Max Verstappen does not quite come close to the successes of his junior. A third position in Hungary 1994 belongs to one of his best placements in the royal class, which Minichamps took into account in scale 1:18 (Jos Verstappen Benetton B194 #6 3rd Hungarian GP Formula 1 1994 1:18 Minichamps, item number: 110941006).
