Max Verstappen won 10 races in a row and broke the Formula 1 record Verstappen confirmed the record set by Red Bull’s second-placed Sebastian Vettel in 2013. Race winner Max Verstappen is celebrating a record 10th consecutive race after Sunday’s Italian F1 GP at Monza. Mark Thompson Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen made history on Sunday with his 10th consecutive victory, continuing an exceptionally dominant season with victory at the Italian Grand Prix. Verstappen, who drives for Red Bull Racing, broke the record of nine consecutive victories, which was first achieved 10 years ago by Sebastian Vettel, who also won four world titles while driving for the Red Bull team. “Another win! And a nice one too,” Verstappen said on his team’s radio after taking the checkered flag. “That’s a good statistic.” “I never thought it was possible,” he added in a post-race interview. “But we had to work for it today, so that definitely made it a lot more fun.” Verstappen, 25, who beat Vettel’s record last week by winning his home race in Holland, is on course for his third world championship this year. After Verstappen and Vettel, the next names in this record book are the three F1 drivers who have won seven races in a row: Alberto Ascari, Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg. It wasn’t Verstappen’s win on Sunday. He started the race second behind Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz, who took pole on his team’s home run and delighted the Tifos by fending off Verstappen’s early attempts to attack his lead on track. Verstappen finally passed him on lap 15. Verstappen has won 12 of the season’s 14 races, with his Red Bull Racing teammate Sergio Perez taking the other two. No team has ever won every race in a Formula One season.
