Max Verstappen is all set to claim his third successive Formula 1 driver's world title. It's not a matter of 'if', it's a simple case of 'when'.


Verstappen isn't able to clinch the trophy in Japan this weekend, but he will be determined to make huge strides towards eliminating distant competitors from the title... well... it's not really a chase, is it?

The Red Bull megastar has produced one of the most dominant seasons in Formula 1 history and can't be discounted from winning all seven remaining races, such is his confidence and maturity right now.

But just how successful has Verstappen's season been so far? brings you all the stats and figures on Max Verstappen in the 2023 season.

How many races has Max Verstappen won in 2023?

Max Verstappen has won 12 of 15 races in 2023 so far, prior to the Japanese Grand Prix.

His record winning streak stands at 10, which is a new F1 all-time record. Unfortunately, a dismal weekend in Singapore saw the streak end.

There are seven races left in 2023 and Verstappen boasts a 152-point lead over Sergio Perez. Only Verstappen, Perez, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso can mathematically win the title in 2023, but let's face it: Verstappen will do it.

There's zero chance Verstappen could win the title in Japan for a second year running, but he clinch it at the Qatar Grand Prix in the first race after Suzuka.
