He won his third World Championship as legends of the caliber of Senna and Lauda

With six GPs left in the season, Verstappen, with his second place in the Qatar GP Sprint, has è mathematically become F1 World Champion for the third time. Three titles like Senna, Lauda, Piquet, Stewart and Brabham.

His statistics are impressive, as is his class on the track. He literally dominated this season with 13 victories out of 16 GPs held. In total he has won 15 podiums with fifth place as his worst result. He has already won 48 GPs and the meter is still running. Overall, there are 92 podiums achieved out of 179 GPs he has taken part in (with 30 pole positions). His first victory was at the Spanish GP in May 2016.

A true cannibal but also able to take moments of relaxation: "Lately I play padel with Norris, Albon and Russell but the talent l've put it all in F1". Having forfeited his third World Champion title, he seems destined to write many more new records in F1 history.
