Younger brother of British touring car driver Tom, Max drove for Marussia since his F1 debut. Had the remarkable record of having finished all of his races, up until his 26th Grand Prix in Canada - where somewhat ironically, he retired on the first lap. Marussia went into administration, and then went bankrupt towards the end of 2014, so Max returned to his British F3 team, Carlin, as they moved to America and Indy Lights - Max did testing and development for the team as they prepares for Max and Carlin to be in the Indycar Series in 2016. Carlin didn't move up, but Max did, with Ganassi, with whom he remained in 2017. In 2018, Carlin did move up to Indycar, so Max switched back to them.
