Jos Verstappen has been hit with attempted murder charges

Former Grand Prix driver Jos Verstappen is heading towards a late inclusion in our recently published ‘Top 10 F1 Felons’ feature article, with Dutch police upgrading his recent assault charges to attempted murder.

The two-time podium finisher turned himself into police last week after his former girlfriend laid a complaint with police, alleging he had assaulted her.

It now turns out that the 39-year-old has been remanded in custody for two weeks, where he’s been hit with attempted murder charges, with allegations that he hit his 24-year-old ex with his car.

Verstappen’s lawyer, Marcel Heuvelmans, has said his client will contest the charges.
