Max Verstappen and Red Bull have been nominated for the prestigious Laureus World Sports Awards for 2024.

Having won the 2022 World Sportsman of the Year, Red Bull’s Verstappen has been nominated once again in the category for 2024 Laureus World Sports Awards after winning the 2023 F1 drivers’ world championship – his third on the bounce.

The Dutchman only became the fourth driver to have the prestigious award in 2022 after Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel. Should he win this year, he will join Schumacher in becoming only the second F1 driver to have won more than once.

Verstappen has stiff competition from Erling Haaland & Lionel Messi (Football), Mondo Duplantis & Noah Lyles (Athletics), Novak Djokovic (Tennis). The Dutchman’s team Red Bull has been nominated for World Team of the Year.

Having had a dominating run, Red Bull ended the Mercedes domination in 2022 in the V6 Hybrid era together with Honda by winning the constructors’ title. They repeated success in 2023 and should they win the award this year, it will be a first for them, joining Renault, Brawn GP and Mercedes in the process.

In terms of competition, Red Bull is up against Spain Women’s Team & Manchester City (Football), Germany Men’s Team (Basketball), European Ryder Team Cup and Springboks (Rugby). The award ceremony will take place on April 22 in Madrid.
