Max Verstappen has claimed that his Red Bull RB19 is not the best F1 car, insisting “there have been more dominant cars in the past”.
Despite facing challenging weather conditions, Max Verstappen matched Sebastian Vettel’s Formula 1 record of nine consecutive victories in his home race at Zandvoort. With this win, Verstappen has now triumphed in 11 out of 13 races this season, with his teammate Sergio Perez being the only other driver to achieve a victory. The Red Bull RB19, designed by renowned F1 expert Adrian Newey, may be remembered as one of the most competitive cars in history if it remains undefeated on Sundays this year. However, Verstappen believes that there have been more dominant cars in the past that were unable to achieve consecutive wins like his team has. Despite the significant accomplishment of matching Vettel’s record, Verstappen never expected to achieve such a feat and was particularly happy to win in front of his home crowd. With this win, Verstappen has extended his lead over Perez in the championship, bringing him one step closer to his third consecutive world title.
