Max Verstappen has made it six wins out of eight races so far in the 2023 season with a dominant display in the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday, June 18.
The Flying Dutchman continued Red Bull’s 100-percent winning record this year, while also claiming the team’s 100th Formula 1 victory, having crossed the finish line ahead of Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton in second and third place respectively. With this win, Verstappen has matched the legendary Ayrton Senna’s record of 41 victories at the pinnacle of motorsport.
Just over four seconds behind Hamilton was Charles Leclerc, who is back in the fight after a troublesome start to the season with Ferrari.
Meanwhile, it just wasn’t George Russell’s day as the Brit missed out on a potential podium fight in the other Mercedes after an early crash caused major damage to his car that led to his retirement from the race.
The next race on the calendar will see the F1 circus travel to Spielberg’s Red Bull Ring for the Austrian Grand Prix on Sunday, July 2.
