Last Sunday (24), through social networks and official websites, Max Verstappen became two-time world champion after winning the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Japan. With the victory, the driver won his second consecutive constructors’ title, being the 13th of the season in a total of 16 races.
“It was an incredible weekend and it’s great to win here, but the most important thing was winning the constructors’ championship. Congratulations to everyone at the factory, we are having an incredible year”, said Max Verstappen. The achievement brings the pilot closer to his third world championship.
With a total of 400 points, due to the last race, Max Verstappen remains 177 points behind Sérgio Perez, and if the Belgian achieves a higher score in the next matches, two weeks from now, he will be able to achieve a record and conquer the position of three-time champion.
The last competition also marked another milestone in the driver’s career, as the athlete managed to break the mark that until then was held by Michael Schumacher, due to the number of races won. However, his teammate Sergio Pérez was unable to achieve any success in the match.
Recently, assumptions emerged that Red Bull Racing would be considering new partners to accompany Max Verstappen in his performance next year. The team boss, Christian Horner, had commented that by the end of 2028 he wants the best athletes available for the team, leaving doubts about renewing the contract with the Mexican.
