Verstappen passes driving test as he turns 18

Toro Rosso driver Max Verstappen turned 18th and passed his driving test on Wednesday.

"It's great to be 18 and to have a driving license," he said on his website. "That I'm finally allowed on the road on my own gives me more independence, which is great!

"I have to say it's a relief to pass the test. I was a bit nervous to make mistakes, but the exam went well."

"It's a moment of peace and I still think that way," he added. "However, if I want to go somewhere on my own, at least now I'm able to jump in my Renault Clio RS and go. That sense of liberty feels great."
