The Formula 1 records broken, and what's in his sights amid 2022 dominance (Sky Sports)
Max Verstappen made his mark on Formula 1's record books long before becoming a world champion.
But the man who insists he is not interested in records has gone on to smash more thanks to a quite remarkable 2022 season he has dominated, and which still has two races left.
The records Verstappen has already broken this year
While there are admittedly more races now than in many seasons past, Verstappen's total win percentage this year (70 per cent) is better than Vettel's, and only behind Schumacher and Alberto Ascari (1952) in F1 history.
Most points (416*)Lewis Hamilton did hold first and second place in this category with his tallies of 413 and 408 in 2019 and 2018 respectively.
If he keeps going at, say, the rate of 2021 and 2022 - an average of 12 wins per season - Verstappen would be up at Hamilton's marker by the end of his current contract in 2028, when he would be just 31 years old.
The records Verstappen could break in the future
These records are all more distant goals for Verstappen, but his age and speed puts him on track.
