F1's most dominant drives of the century

Where does Verstappen's Hungarian Grand Prix victory stand?

F1 championship leader Max Verstappen waltzed to victory with ease at the Hungarian Grand Prix to secure a record-breaking 12th consecutive win for Red Bull.

The Dutchman is well on his way to a third world title having extended his advantage over teammate Sergio Perez to 110 points after 11 races with his 33.731-second win over McLaren's Lando Norris at the Hungaroring.

Verstappen has dominated races all season but despite suggestions the rest of the pack was catching Red Bull, the winning margin was the largest of the campaign.

But where does the result place Verstappen in the list of most commanding victories since the turn of the century? Take a look at the table below!
