Red Bull and Max Verstappen won the hearts of F1 fans all over after they granted the wish of a kid with disability.
Steven is a young kid living in the UK, who suffers from muscle wasting disorder. In spite of his disability, he’s a fighter and a huge fan of 2021 World Champion Verstappen.
Young Steven owns lots of Red Bull and Verstappen merch, but it was his lifelong dream to meet his hero. The Genies Wish is an organization that helps people with terminal or critical illness, realize their dreams and wishes. Earlier this week, they managed to grant Steven’s wish.
WE DID IT… Max Verstappen is meeting Steven this weekend!!
Thank you so much to @redbullracing and to all who helped make this happen by sharing and tagging the posts. We are over the moon for Steven and his family.

He will now travel to Silverstone to meet his hero Max Verstappen. The Dutch driver and the Red Bull have invited the young boy on the 2nd and 3rd of July, and he will be able to meet them in the paddock.
The Genies Wish posted a video on their Twitter account, where Steven’s mother came to break the good news to him. It’s a wholesome video, which has won the hearts of the entire F1 community.
