Verstappen breaks 71-year-old record

After winning the Brazilian GP, the twentieth round of the season, Max Verstappen reached 17 victories in 2023 (Perez has two and Sainz, one). But it wasn't just another victory. Even if he doesn't win the last two races of the year (Las Vegas and Abu Dhabi), the three-time champion will finish this season with 17 victories in 22 races. This means that the Dutchman will have a success rate of 77.27%.

This mark is better than the 75% that Alberto Ascari achieved in 1952. The Italian two-time world champion won six of the eight races in the year of his first Formula 1 title.

The victory at Interlagos isolated Max Verstappen as the fourth biggest winner in F1 history. The three-time world champion left the French four-time world champion Alain Prost behind and reached 52 victories in Formula 1. Max is just one behind Sebastian Vettel, the third biggest winner. Lewis Hamilton continues leading this ranking with 103 victories. Michael Schumacher follows with 91.

This is Max Verstappen, 26 years old, three-time world champion and records breaker.
