Red Bull’s Max Verstappen has sealed Formula One’s most dominant season with a historic 19th win in 22 races at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Verstappen’s pole-to-flag victory marked his 54th career win, placing him alone in third place in Formula One’s all-time list of winners, behind Lewis Hamilton (103) and Michael Schumacher (91).

Despite a post-race penalty dropping Red Bull’s Sergio Perez off the podium, Verstappen’s triumph highlighted Red Bull’s exceptional performance throughout the season.

Red Bull’s 860 points significantly surpassed Mercedes’ 409 and Ferrari’s 406, securing their position as the dominant force in Formula One.

Verstappen’s remarkable season included a record 10 consecutive wins, 21 podium finishes, and a record win rate of 86.4%. He also became the first driver to lead 1,000 racing laps in a single championship, underscoring his exceptional skill and dominance.
