Max Verstappen fans are head over heels trying to find their best moment of the season and discussing the glorious campaign of their star. Formula 1 witnesses a new legend every generation, and its currently Max Verstappen’s turn to shine. The Dutch champion has given fans a reason to rejoice and brag about almost every race this year.

Max Verstappen isn’t the type of driver who focuses on the hype or stories built around any big thing. But, after securing his third title in spectacular fashion, it was obvious that the Red Bull ace would have his own favorite moments in the journey.

What are Max Verstappen’s best wins this season?

Max Verstappen found himself in a challenging situation when selecting his favorite wins from the impressive 19 he achieved this season. There were several moments throughout the season that appeared to be his best. Fans would likely anticipate his selection of a race where he achieved remarkable milestones, such as the Brazilian GP Sprint, where he became the second driver to win on a Saturday, or the Abu Dhabi GP, where he became the first driver to lead a thousand laps in a single season.

In spite of such brilliance adorning his season, Verstappen instead went forth with some not-so-exotic races and chose his best 3 races of the season. His list was definitely not what the fandom expected and quite a surprise.

“I think the comeback race in Miami was great, that was an important one. Winning at home at Zandvoort was a very nice one, and I think winning at Suzuka, after the tough weekend we had in Singapore.”

These races may have been simple for public eyes, but for a driven man like Max, they were nothing short of a moment to rejoice and be happy about.
