Red Bull is set to equal yet another of its F1 records at this weekend's Qatar Grand Prix.

The Milton Keynes-based outfit has been dominant throughout the season having taken victory in all but one of the races this term - the only failure to win coming at the Singapore Grand Prix.

Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez could tie the team's record for most consecutive points finishes with a top 10 in Sunday's race or a top eight in Saturday's Sprint at the Lusail International Circuit.

The current record stands at 38 races in a row, set twice between Spain 2016 and Australia 2018 and then Spain of the same season to Abu Dhabi in 2019.

Red Bull's streak stands at 37 ahead of the Qatar weekend having scored in every race since last season's Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

The record would have already been broken had neither driver dramatically retired in the closing stages of the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix, with points having been scored in the closing rounds of the 2021 season.

Verstappen also enters the weekend with the chance to secure his third consecutive Drivers' title, with the earliest opportunity presented in Saturday's Sprint.
