A high-profile and longtime personal sponsor of world champion Max Verstappen is at the center of a major scandal in the Netherlands.

The home belonging to CEO and owner of the Jumbo supermarket chain, Frits van Eerd, was raided by police last week in what Eindhoven News described as « a major investigation into money laundering ».

The report indicates that the money laundering occurred through financial transactions, including participation in car races.

Raymond Vermeulen, who manages the current championship leader’s career with Max’s father Jos, said the Verstappen clan were not jumping to conclusions following the revelations.

« Caution is advised here. We are waiting for the facts to be on the table. We have been in touch with Jumbo and management and marketing will continue as usual. »

At the same time, Vermeulen alienates the Verstappen clan from van Eerd himself.

« We have agreements with Jumbo, and the supermarket chain is not part of the investigation. This has been made clear. Let’s be careful with all sorts of suggestive things and wait for the facts to come out. »
