Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen has signed a deal to continue his partnership with current sponsor Exact, until the end of 2019.

It has already been a successful relationship for the Dutchman and the accountancy firm during the eighteen months they have worked together so far, with Verstappen having gone on to become the youngest ever F1 race winner in that time, whilst Exact are on their way to becoming a top global provider of cloud business software for SME’s.

Both are ambitious in their respective fields, which is why they are such a perfect fit for one another. Verstappen advised that he was looking forward to completing another successful season with Exact’s continued support.

“The collaboration with Exact is outstanding, so I’m very happy with our continued partnership.

“It’s great to have a partner that is as passionate and ambitious as I am and that sees me as an example for its own employees and customers.

“The way they received me after my victory in Spain last year was unforgettable. My goal for this season is to give them a few more occasions for such celebrations.

CEO of Exact, Erik van der Meijden, was also extremely pleased to have been able to strengthen their collaboration with Verstappen, who has become an icon for their brand.

“In August 2015 we signed a partnership with a top talent. Today we prolonged that agreement with a world star.

“The personal partnership has done much for both Max and Exact. For example, as our Tech Talent Leader, he is an inspiration for the growth that talented individuals can achieve within Exact. We are therefore extremely proud to remain Max Verstappen’s partner for the years to come. 

“He is the embodiment of realising ambitions and we support him in realising his ultimate ambition of becoming World Champion.

Since coming together with the 19-year-old back in 2015, the number of organisations that use Exact software worldwide, has risen from 230,000 to almost 350,000. A growth spurt they very much look forward to continuing in 2017, whilst spurring Verstappen on to become a F1 world champion.
