Max Verstappen has been on a roll ever since this season started. He has started off on a very high note and currently sits on top the standings for 400 points. His heroics have given him a record of 10 consecutive wins and very soon he maybe crowned as the 2023 champion.
Sergio Perez is 2nd in the driver standings with 223 points and due to thus massive point difference, Alonso and Hamilton are out of the competition. There are only 180 points left this season and for Perez to win the championship, Max needs to stay out of points in almost every race remaining.

Recently, he also took another record in his bag by becoming the youngest driver to win 48 races at just 25 years in F1. the most interesting fact about this was the fact that he got this record at 24 years itself. He had broken the earlier record of 29 wins at 25 years, held by Sebastian Vettel in August 2022 itself when he took his 9th win for the 2022 season on his way to another World Championship.
In fact, Max Verstappen has already broken most of the records for maximum number of wins at his age. This has become a stepping stone for his success basking in the glory of the Red Bull’s speed. If he stays in Red Bull for some more years, with the help of the ‘Master Airbender’ Adrian Newey, it is very likely that he can break the all time record of maximum number of wins by a single driver. This record is currently held by Lewis Hamilton.
