Verstappen overtakes Alonso in F1 and goes for win record

Achieving a victory in the highest category of motorsports is something only reserved for a privileged few who manage to demonstrate the talent they possess and cross the finish line in first position. It is something that 112 drivers have done throughout history, the last of them to join the list, Carlos Sainz at the 2022 British Grand Prix, but although reaching this historic classification is already difficult, climbing positions in her it is much more complicated.

Lewis Hamilton remains on top with 103 wins , followed by Michael Schumacher with 91 and Sebastian Vettel with 53 , while Alain Prost has 51 and Ayrton Senna with 41 . Fernando Alonso was placed behind, with 32 victories throughout his journey through Formula 1, but in the last United States Grand Prix, Max Verstappen managed to overtake the Spaniard to become the sixth driver who has stepped on top the most times from the podium.

The Dutchman broke all kinds of records since he landed at the Grand Circus, becoming the youngest to compete in a race, being still a minor, at 17 years, 5 months and 15 days , as well as being the youngest to win an appointment at the championship, at the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix in his debut with Red Bull. At that time, nobody in the paddock thought that he could achieve the numbers he is having, and that is that in his career, he accumulates a percentage of more than 20%, which means that out of every five appointments, he wins one.

If you take into account that in his first steps in Formula 1, it was not until 2021 when he began to dominate with a much more competitive Red Bull, and that is that of 41 grand prix, he has won 23, that is, more than 56 % , one out of every two races. This is how you achieve memorable eras in sport, as others like Michael Jordan, Leo Messi, Roger Federer or Valentino Rossi did, even in the same category, with Michael Schumacher.

If he continues with a similar percentage, it will not take long to catch up with Lewis Hamilton and his 103 victories, and around 2028 or 2029 , just when his current contract with the Milton Keynes team ends, he would already surpass him, with just 31 years of experience. age, when the British and the ‘ Kaiser ‘ were still for their third world title.
