  5. Max Verstappen is de jongste …


Max Verstappen is de jongste F1 winnaar aller tijden!!!

It looks like that today is a historical day in motorsport. Congrats Max Verstappen who is only 18 years old and has a coolness of an old F1 wolf! In my 16th season of being a F1 fan I am surprised and frightened at once!

Damn, Daniel! My best friend who's Congolese/Djiboutian/British/French/Belgian is currently training for the F1 so I'm constantly on the lookout for these things. But to be 18 and have the F1 under your belt is pretty damn amazing.


I have been supporting Kimi all the years, so it's understandable that I am a bit pissed off by the results, but well... it just shows that there is an evolution in F1, and there are still reasons for me to watch it the following seasons as well as my fav will have left the sport.


Max has just passed Jamala to get to the top of 'In the News' on Wikipedia!


I appreciate it as a good reason for a listening comprehension exercise :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkU-F9BIN7A
Can you help me, which dialect does Giedo speak? For me it sounds kind of different from the others.


Nice clip, Max clearly doesn't feel any pressure, unbelievable how relaxed he is.

The only one who speaks a bit of dialect is Jeffrey Herlings. However I'd say that many Dutch dialects would be further away from standard Dutch than how he is speaking (or maybe for the occasion he's changed a bit towards standard Dutch). Jeffrey he has an east Brabant dialect/accent, this is actually not very different from Max' accent (Limburgs), but Max speaks a lot closer to general Dutch (FYI the east of Brabant borders the north of Limburg).

Guido van der Garde speaks standard Dutch, because you asked about how he talks, the one thing I noticed is that his g's are pretty hard, but definitely not any specific regional accent. If you hadn't asked me, I wouldn't have noticed anything.


Thank you for such a detailled analysis. That's good that you say that there is something of Limburg influence in their way of talking as I am going to Limburg for a month on purpose of studies, so now I can imagine more or less how people talk there :)))

"...alleR tijden" = "... van alle tijden"
It's one of the few instances where the genitive has remained.
