Verstappen among the greats

25 June, 2023

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen equalled Ayrton Senna’s career total of 41 victories with a dominant win at the Canadian Grand Prix.

The Dutchman’s sixth triumph in eight races this season gave him a 69-point lead in the championship and was the 100th victory for his Red Bull team.

Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso passed Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes on track to win a battle for second place. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc recovered from qualifying 11th to take fourth.

Verstappen’s winning margin of 9.5 seconds was the smallest a Red Bull has had over another team so far this season, giving encouragement to the chasing pack.

But it was clear that 25-year-old Verstappen had not needed to extend himself and could almost certainly have won by a far larger margin. (BBC Sport)
