The 39-year-old, a former teammate to Michael Schumacher in the 90s, faced an attempted murder charge after his ex-girlfriend is alleged to have been struck recently by Verstappen's car.

He has been in police custody for two weeks.

The Dutch news agency ANP said the attempted murder charge has now been withdrawn, and his lawyer is quoted as saying there is also no evidence of attempted aggravated assault.

"The court granted the request for Jos Verstappen's release, partly because of the lack of evidence," a statement provided by the lawyers read.
