Verstappen's former sponsor must appear in court

Verstappen's former sponsor must appear in court

Former Jumbo CEO and racing driver Frits van Eerd must appear in court. Max Verstappen's former sponsor became discredited in 2022 when it became known he may have been involved in a money laundering case. Justice will now try him on charges of corruption and forgery.

In September 2022, Van Eerd's home was raided. This caused a massive riot and Van Eerd resigned as CEO of the Jumbo supermarket chain. The Public Prosecution Office in North Holland will now prosecute him on charges of corruption and forgery. In addition, they also reported that the investigation into him has not yet been completed. He could also be tried for money laundering.

The Van Eerd case also had consequences for motorsport in the Netherlands. With Jumbo, he was one of Max Verstappen's biggest sponsors for years, but that deal eventually ended. Van Eerd was also active in endurance racing with Racing Team Dutch. He participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans several times and shared his car with Jan Lammers and others. Van Eerd also participated in the Dakar Rally several times with a truck. Van Eerd has not appeared in the ring since the money laundering case.
