A Dutch online supermarket will pay 150,000 euros to Verstappen for playing a similar one for his Red Bull Formula 1 pilot.
In 2016, an online supermarket played a Verstappen-like promotional ad to make fun of the ad for the big market chain Jumbo, the Dutch sponsor's personal sponsor.
Verstappen's manager wanted the video to be removed immediately.
Picnic filed a lawsuit alleging that Verstappen was paying 400,000 euros in compensation, even if he removed the video.
Eventually, the court decided to pay Verstappen 150,000 euros for Picnic's image infringement.
Asked if he was happy about this, Verstappen said, "Yes, of course, it's a good result because they can not use your image rights the way they want."
"They tried to make it look funny, but it was not a well-thought-out thing, it's a move made to make profits and grow their brands."
"I have my own sponsors and agreements with them, so it is natural for me to oppose it in such a situation."
"Because they may be in the future, you must show them that they can not do such things." said.
Picnic made the following statement in his statement: "The video we published on Facebook was purely fun and motivational for our employees.
"We lifted the video as soon as we heard that Max was not satisfied."
"It's hard to believe that Max is so damaged as to ask for such compensation."
