Formula 1 drivers break Red Bull’s Max Verstappen’s record at the Mexican Grand Prix.
Verstappen took his 14th win of the 2022 F1 season last weekend, the most wins in a single campaign. And with two grands prix remaining on the 22-event calendar, he could extend the new record.
Among those waiting for him is Verstappen’s 2019-20 team-mate Alexander Albon. He’s at the top of his form right now,” Albon said. He’s at the top of his game, and with a couple more tournaments now, I suspect he’ll continue.
Verstappen’s performance “takes a lot of credit,” said Albon, who is a year older than his former team-mate but has started fewer than 100 F1 races. “He’s still relatively young, but he’s got a lot of experience, and you can see the confidence he has in himself. It’s amazing,” he said.
The Williams driver believes Verstappen has helped him “understand the philosophy of the fast car better” and that the two-time world champion has a “different” performance method with Pirelli F1 tyres.
“It may not always be easy to drive, but there is a way to be faster around them. It’s no secret that you need a lot of fun to be fast. [like him]He said.
McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo, Verstappen’s team-mate at Red Bull from 2016-18, praised the team’s work in delivering a record-breaking car.
“They were dominant. Some people cringe when someone takes over, but really, on the one hand, it’s amazing to see.
“I know Red Bull very well and many people in the team have worked very hard to get back to the builders. Verstappen “will continue to break records for the rest of his career”. So of course I feel joy in my heart for them. “
His team-mate Lando Norris, who competed with Verstappen in esports as well as in F1, said the feat was incredible.
“He’s scoring a lot, breaking a lot of records,” Norris said. He will probably continue to break records for the rest of his career. Probably one of the best drivers in F1. So everyone deserves it.”
