The Red Bull driver, Max Verstappen won the 2023 United States Grand Prix and registered his 15th win of the 2023 Formula 1 season. This is the joint most wins by a driver in a Formula 1 season, and with no surprise, he holds the record. Last year, he won 15 Grand Prix, which was a record, and now he equals it with a total of 4 races left in the season.
With this victory, he has now won 50 Grand Prix in his Formula 1 career. The Red Bull’s dominance has been the best in Formula 1 history, especially Max Verstappen’s dominance. In the past two seasons, he has won 30 races collectively and is going to win a few more. He has won both championships convincingly, and no driver is closer to him.
The Mercedes driver, Lewis Hamilton, and McLaren driver, Lando Norris, gave him some competition at the 2023 Austin Grand Prix, but they couldn’t stand tall against him. Things are so easy for Red Bull when a driver like Max Verstappen drives a car for them.
Whether he will be winning all the remaining Grand Prix of the season or will someone dare to go ahead of him and win the Grand Prix? For that, we will have to wait for a while and hope someone challenges him.
