In a groundbreaking development, Max Verstappen surpassed the indomitable Sebastian Vettel‘s record for the highest number of successive wins in the rich history of Formula 1. The historic event occurred during the Italian Grand Prix when Verstappen, the Red Bull racer, marked his tenth consecutive victory.
The illustrious milestone, however, was veiled by a slight pall of controversy. Toto Wolff, the supremo of Mercedes, voiced his indifference towards Verstappen’s record-breaking victory – an achievement he brushed off as ‘totally irrelevant’ to him.
Diverse opinions swirl around this milestone, with Wolff stating, “I don’t know if [Verstappen] cares about the records. It was something totally irrelevant to me.” It remains to be seen how the F1 community and Verstappen himself respond to Wolff’s dismissive remarks about a record that undeniably solidifies Verstappen’s place in F1 history.
