Former Grand Prix driver Jos Verstappen will pay his first visit to the F1 paddock in a very long time, dropping in at the Spa-Francorchamps paddock this weekend.

Jos Verstappen will attend the Belgian GP with his son Max The Dutchman contested over 100 Grands Prix between 1994 and 2003 in a sporadic career, and enjoyed immense popularity in his homeland as ‘Joss the Boss’.

Writing in his regular column for De Telegraaf, Verstappen, 38, confirmed that he would attend the Grand Prix with his son Max, who is following his father’s footsteps by forging an impressive reputation in the junior karting scene.

“It was a long time ago that I was physically present at a Grand Prix,” Jos wrote. “I asked Bernie Ecclestone very nicely for a pass and I’m happy that The Big Boss still knows who I am!”
