Max Verstappen and Christian Horner, Red Bull’s team principal, agree that the team’s achievements this season will be very hard to repeat.
Verstappen, the championship driver, and Red Bull rewrote the record books in defending their drivers’ and constructors’ championships.
He set the record for most wins in a season, 19 from 22 Grands Prix; for consecutive number of victories, 10; and the highest percentage of wins in a season, 86.36 percent, beating the previous best of 75 percent by Alberto Ascari in 1952, an era when there were only eight races.
“It will be very hard to have another season like this, we know that,” Verstappen said. He also became the first driver to lead for more than 1,000 laps in a season, with 1,003.
