Once Red Bull lost its chance at invincibility in 2023 after defeat in Singapore, attention turned to records that it could still grab.
One was the most wins by a team in a single season - with the existing benchmark being the 19 from 21 Mercedes recorded in 2016 with the W07.
The only two races it didn't win that year came in Spain when Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg famously crashed on Lap 1 and in Malaysia when Hamilton's engine failed. Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo picked up the wins for Red Bull, respectively.
That had been the yardstick, but the record has now shifted to the RB19, which has become, statistically speaking, the greatest F1 car of all-time.
Verstappen's victory in Las Vegas was the 20th of the year for the team - and while there are more races in modern Formula 1 than say 20 years ago when 16 was the number, they are still races that need to be won.
With 20 wins from 21 races heading into the Abu Dhabi finale - a track it has won the last three races at - Red Bull currently sits on a win percentage of 95.23%. If it wins in Abu Dhani, that will climb to 95.45%.
The team has also smashed the record for most points by a Constructor in a season, currently holding 822, with 44 on offer in Abu Dhabi for a potential total of 866 for the year. Mercedes' previous record set in 2016 was 765, with Red Bull falling just short in 2022 in 759.
