After karting and a few years in Italian F3, Papis stepped up to European F3000 in 1993 with the Vortex team and enjoyed a solid first season. He switched to Mythos for another crack the following year and jaws soon dropped when the Italian proved dominant at Barcelona with a performance he could not repeat.

Taken under the wing of former Lotus boss Peter Collins (who had given him a test in 1994), Papis proved that he had more to offer than many would have supposed once he got behind the wheel of a Footwork and Max certainly relished his chance to join the Grand Prix ranks. Only the late challenge of Boullion, who pipped him for sixth place, denied Papis a championship point at Monza.

The Italian raced Gianpiero Moretti's Ferrari 333SP sports car in America in 1996 and his impressive performances caught the eye of the Arciero-Wells team, who gave him his CART chance after the tragic death of Jeff Krosnoff. For much of 1997 and 1998 Max was handicapped by the lack of horsepower from the Toyota engine, but he comfortably eclipsed his team-mates Matsushita and Gordon. The big breakthrough came for Papis when Bobby Rahal put him into one of his cars for 1999. Only cruel luck robbed him of a deserved victory on the last lap of the US 500, but throughout the season he had consistently shown that his day will surely come.
