Max Verstappen relishes Mama's cooking

After another underwhelming race weekend, Max Verstappen was happy to leave Monza behind and head home for some down time with his family.

Before he embarks on the long haul to Singapore next week, Max savored the cooking of his Belgian mother Sophie.

While many often mention the racing genes Max inherited from his father, his mother also provided quite a competitive amount of DNA.

Sophie Kumpen was a top flight karting star in the nineties who raced in the Formula Super A world championships against the likes of Giancarlo Fisichella and Jarno Trulli.
