Verstappen rates current Red Bull success compared to 2022

Max Verstappen has enjoyed two dominant seasons in Formula 1, but says there is a difference this year compared to the previous campaign.

Max Verstappen has made a comparison between Red Bull’s two title-winning campaigns in the last two years, stating its current season is “better” than last year.

Red Bull sealed the Constructors’ Championship last weekend at the Japanese Grand Prix following Verstappen’s dominant drive to victory.

It marked Verstappen’s 13th win of the year, with Red Bull emerging victorious in 15 of the 16 Grands Prix staged so far.

Singapore marked the team’s only stumbling block this season as it has been largely unchallenged at the other events.

Red Bull also ran away with the titles last year - but speaking to media including RacingNews365, Verstappen has asserted that its ongoing run trumps it.

“It’s better, for sure,” Verstappen said.

“The car has been more dominant this year, apart from Singapore – but all the races we’ve had a really, really good car.

“It’s just an incredible season for everyone involved within the team.

“I’m just very proud to be a part of it but also very proud to be working with all of these amazing people here at the track but also especially back at the factory as well.

“These people you might not see at the track but they are doing also a lot of hard work to make sure that our cars are always in the best shape, get developed throughout the year, and also be best prepared for the year after.”
