The 18-year-old Belgian star’s 180th and final match at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi on Sunday saw him win a remarkable F1 title with a late drive for Team Red Bull.
And the hot-shot Dutchman praised the Abu Dhabi circuit on taking the championship-winning point in the season-ending race.
He said: “It was a difficult night. My emotions were high and low but my team were very supportive throughout the season.
“This was the race I wanted the most as the fans enjoyed it the most. The crowd cheering all the way to the chequered flag was incredible.
“To win the final race like this, with Sebastian I can only say thank you for all the support you have given and I’m very thankful to all the fans here.”
Verstappen’s team principal Franz Tost praised the motor racer after a 17-race season that saw him win two races.
“This was a very emotional night for Max,” Tost said. “There is no doubt what he has done this season has been so special.
“We know that we can push even more from the Red Bull garage so next year we will look to push the car to new limits.
“As we found today, we need to make the car go faster, in the clean air, if we want to win races again.”
