Why would a Mexican NASCAR Cup driver (Daniel Suarez) and a Dutch F1 driver (Max Verstappen) be celebrating Christmas together in Brazil, you ask?
–by Mark Cipolloni–
With the Christmas holidays in full swing, Daniel Suarez was seen celebrating with racing royalty in a recent post by the driver himself. Engaged to Julia Piquet, daughter of 3-time F1 world champion Nelson Piquet, Suarez was seen spending time with the top royalty of motorsports – 3 time F1 World Driving Champion Max Verstappen.
The Piquet sisters seems to have a real affinity to race car drivers.
Julia Piquet’s sister Kelly Piquet happens to be dating Verstappen. The two couples were seen posing for a photo with their extended family which also included Nelson Piquet on Daniel Suarez’s official X (formerly Twitter) account as well as Max Verstappen’s Instagram.

The Piquet family is Brazilian, so both Suarez and Verstappen were celebrating the Christmas holidays in Brazil.
After the Holidays are over, Suarez will prepare for NASCAR’s exhibition-style Busch Light Clash at the LA Memorial Coliseum and the Daytona 500 in mid-February, while Verstappen will prepare for the season opening F1 races in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia in late February and early March.
