Verstappen wins at Spa in crushing eighth in a row

Max Verstappen secured his eighth consecutive win at the Belgian Grand Prix, extending his lead in the Formula One championship. Red Bull’s dominant performance also marked their 13th consecutive victory, making them the first team in F1 history to win the opening 12 races of a season. Verstappen’s teammate, Sergio Perez, finished a distant second, sealing a one-two finish for Red Bull. Charles Leclerc of Ferrari completed the podium in third place.

Starting from sixth on the grid, Verstappen showcased his exceptional driving skills as he stormed to victory in Belgium. With this win, he now has a comfortable lead of 125 points over Perez in the championship standings. Verstappen expressed his confidence in the car and credited his success to making the right overtakes and moves on the track.

Verstappen’s dominance in the championship race has put him on track for a third title, with several races still to go. He has the opportunity to equal Sebastian Vettel’s record of nine successive wins in a season at his home Dutch Grand Prix in August.

The Belgian Grand Prix also saw some intense battles on the track. Perez made an aggressive start, overtaking Leclerc to take the lead. However, Verstappen quickly made his way up the field, passing both Lewis Hamilton and Leclerc to challenge Perez for the win. After a well-executed pit stop, Verstappen was able to overtake Perez on the Kemmel straight and maintain his lead until the end of the race.

Red Bull’s dominance in the constructors’ standings is evident, as they now lead Mercedes by a significant margin of 256 points. The team’s success has been attributed to their exceptional car performance and the skill of their drivers.

While Verstappen’s on-track performance was commendable, his radio conversations with his race engineer, Gianpiero Lambiase, also caught attention. Verstappen’s confidence and occasional banter with Lambiase showcased his strong belief in his abilities.

The Belgian Grand Prix had its fair share of incidents, with McLaren’s Oscar Piastri being the first casualty of the race. Piastri was forced to retire after a collision with Carlos Sainz of Ferrari on the opening lap. Sainz’s car suffered damage, and he eventually retired from the race as well.

Overall, the Belgian Grand Prix was a memorable race for Max Verstappen and Red Bull, solidifying their position as the dominant force in Formula One. With their record-breaking performances, they have set a new standard in the sport.
