Verstappen posted a picture of him and Kelly on Instagram, writing: “Enjoying the last few days of the summer break!”
The Brazilian model also shared some pics from their holiday to her 416,000 Insta followers, writing: “You and me, and the sound of the sea.”
Kelly, 32, is nearly nine years older than Verstappen and is the daughter of racing legend Nelson Piquet, who won three F1 titles during the 1980s.
She previously dated former F1 star Daniil Kvyat, 27, between 2016 and 2019, giving birth to their baby daughter in July 2019.
Verstappen doesn’t share a lot of photos from his personal life on Insta but does give his 5.5 million followers plenty of F1 pics.
The couple are reportedly soaking up the sun on the Caribbean island of Sint Maarten ahead of the next race in Spa, Belgium on August 29.
Verstappen is currently second in the Drivers’ Championship, eight points behind British ace Lewis Hamilton.
The Belgian-born Dutch star has let his position slip in recent weeks, retiring at the British Grand Prix and finishing ninth in Hungary.
Hamilton has won seven world titles during his career and is hoping to claim an eighth and become the outright record holder later this year.
Verstappen is his biggest challenger and wants to become the third-youngest racer in history to win the Drivers’ Championship.
