World Champion Max Verstappen breaks Schumacher record in Mexico

World Champion Max Verstappen is one of the most unbeatable drivers in the world!! The Red Bull star won the race in Mexico ahead of Lewis Hamilton. A special triumph. Max Verstappen's demonstration of power! In Mexico, the former and current Formula 1 World Champion set a record for the most wins in a single season when he earned his 14th win of the season.

Never before has a pilot achieved so many successes in one year. During their best days, Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel raked in a total of "only" 13 trophies during their career in Formula One. There was never any doubt that Verstappen was going to win in Mexico.

Starting the race from pole position, the 25-year-old driver proved to be a dominant force and dominated all the events during the race. There were no major incidents during the race in front of 70,000 loud fans. The seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton finished 15 seconds behind the Dutchman, while Sergio Perez (Red Bull) finished third on the podium.

Verstappen thus set a new record for the number of victories in one season and this was his 14th celebration this season, making him the first driver in history to do so.

“I never thought I would be able to win 14 races in a year, I am incredibly proud,” he said.

“We’re definitely enjoying it and we’ll try to go for more”. Verstappen confirmed that, despite all the success, he had indeed run out of patience. “This year has been a constant digging, being disrespectful, especially one particular person and it is enough, I don’t accept it,” he said.

“If you keep disrespecting me I am not tolerating it any more and that is why I decided to stop answering”. With 13 victories so far, the 25-year-old Dutchman was tied with Michael Schumacher from 2004 and Sebastian Vettel from 2013. Ferrari drivers Sainz and Leclerc finished fifth and sixth, respectively.
