Max Verstappen claims record 14th win of season in Mexico

Max Verstappen became the first Formula One driver to win 14 races in a season with an easy win at the Mexican Grand Prix.

25-year-old Verstappen, who celebrated his second world title earlier this month, led from pole position and never looked like losing the win.

He has now surpassed the combined tally of 13 of Michael Schumacher (2004) and Sebastian Vettel (2013) in an absolutely dominant season.

“It’s been an incredible year so far,” said Verstappen after the race. “We’re definitely enjoying it and will try to achieve more.”

Verstappen ended his second championship at the Japanese Grand Prix with four races to go before winning the US Grand Prix at Austin.

Verstappen could finish with 16 wins if he wins the remaining events in Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

The Mexico victory is the 34th in Verstappen’s career. He is already sixth on the all-time F1 winners list and is seven wins short of making up for the great Ayrton Senna’s 41 wins.

Verstappen has numerous records from earlier in his F1 career. He became the youngest driver to start a race at the 2015 Australian Grand Prix and the youngest race winner to win a race at the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix at the age of 18.
