The incredible records Verstappen has set in his F1 career

Verstappen currently holds the record for the most consecutive wins, with 10 wins in a row at the Italian Grand Prix. He surpassed Sebastian Vettel’s previous record of nine wins in 2013. Given Red Bull’s strong performance this year, it is likely that Verstappen will continue to add to his winning streak. In 2022, Verstappen broke another record by claiming 15 wins, surpassing Vettel and Michael Schumacher. As of now, Verstappen has already won 12 races in the 2023 season, indicating that this record will soon be broken as well.

Verstappen also holds the record for the most points scored in a single season, with 454 points in 2022. With the increasing number of races in a season, it is possible that this record will be broken in 2023. In 2021, Verstappen had an impressive season, finishing on the podium in 18 out of 21 races. He only missed the top three at Baku, Silverstone, and Monza. In the current 2023 season, he has finished on the podium in all 14 races so far.

Verstappen made history in 2016 by becoming the youngest-ever winner in F1 at 18 years and 228 days. He secured his first victory at the Spanish Grand Prix, taking advantage of a crash involving Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. In 2015, at the age of 17 years and 180 days, Verstappen became F1’s youngest-ever points scorer in Malaysia. He made his F1 debut at the Australian Grand Prix that same year, at the age of 17 years and 166 days.
