Following the Las Vegas Grand Prix, it is evident that Max Verstappen, despite already holding a world championship title, maintains a keen hunger for winning.
With the victory at the Las Vegas Grand Prix, held for the first time, Dutch driver Max Verstappen secured his 53rd career win. Verstappen thereby officially surpassed his compatriot Sebastian Vettel, claiming the third spot on the list of drivers with the most race wins in the history of F1.
At this point, only two drivers stand ahead of Verstappen: Michael Schumacher with 91 race wins and the leader, Lewis Hamilton, boasting 103 race victories.
If Verstappen maintains his impressive form as seen in previous seasons, by the end of 2024, he is poised to surpass the legendary Schumacher and claim the second position on this list. However, to reach the top spot, besides performing exceptionally on the track, Verstappen also needs to hope that Hamilton does not secure any more race victories.
If this scenario unfolds, Verstappen could surpass Hamilton’s record in the F1 2026 season. This is entirely plausible, considering Hamilton is currently facing challenges, not only in competing with his teammate George Russell but also in contending for race wins.
