Max Verstappen has been shortlisted for the Laureus World Sports Awards' Sportsman of the Year.

The Dutchman secured a third F1 Drivers' title in sublime fashion last season, breaking his own record for most wins in a single season.

Verstappen, who won the 2022 award following his first championship triumph, is shortlisted alongside tennis star Novak Djokovic, Swedish pole vaulter Mondo Duplantis, Manchester City striker Erling Haaland, sprinter Noah Lyles and Argentine superstar Lionel Messi - who won the award last year.

Red Bull faces stiff competition

In the Team of the Year catagory, Red Bull faces stiff competition across the board.
