The type of F1 world champion record-breaker Verstappen has proved to be in 2022 – Autosport

With just two races of the 2022 Formula 1 season remaining, we know exactly how this campaign will be remembered. Unlike 2021’s thrilling to-the-wire championship fight, Max Verstappen and Red Bull have dominated.
He’s been a double world champion for three weeks already and following his supreme Austin and Mexico City double-header sweep, he’s a double record-breaker too.
