Verstappen issues new aim: The next target is 200 wins!

After scoring Red Bull's 100th win in Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen insists the team are not resting on their laurels.

Max Verstappen says Red Bull's next target should be to score 200 Grand Prix wins.

The Dutchman scored the drinks-backed squad's landmark 100th Grand Prix victory in Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix in typically dominant fashion, starting from pole position and leading every lap on the way to his 41st victory - equalling the tally of Ayrton Senna and placing him joint fifth in F1's all-time win rankings.

Red Bull's dominance this year is such that it appears extremely likely Verstappen will continue to rack up wins in 2023, and the Dutchman suggested that the team was now looking at scoring a double century of Grand Prix wins.

"When I was a little kid driving in go-karting, I was dreaming about being a Formula 1 driver and I would have never imagined to win 41 Grands Prix, so of course, to tie with Ayrton is something incredible," Verstappen told media, including RacingNews365.com.

"Of course I'm proud of that, but I hope it's not stopping here. I hope that we can keep on winning more races.

"It's a great achievement for the team. We knew that this was the first opportunity to do so, and I'm happy that's done.

"We've won 100. But again, I hope we win more than 100, so the new target is 200."
