Max Verstappen bagged his 59th career win at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, and looks set to soon become just the third driver to achieve 60 victories in Formula 1 history.

The Dutchman is also part of an exclusive list of drivers who have scored more than 100 podiums.

Verstappen's victory in Jeddah earlier this year marked his 100th trip to the podium, and he has continued to add to that tally in the following rounds.

After his win from Imola, Verstappen has now overtaken Kimi Raikkonen on the all-time podium-scoring list.

The result was Verstappen's 104th career podium and he also appears on course to soon overtake the all-time tally of Fernando Alonso ahead.

Only Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel, Alain Prost and Alonso have scored more career podiums than Verstappen.

Take a look at the full top 10 tally below!
