Winning the United States Grand Prix enabled Max Verstappen to equal the record for most number of wins in a season jointly held by Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel.

It was also a 33rd win for car number 33, which brings Verstappen up to sixth on the all-time win list in Formula 1, surpassing Fernando Alonso and putting him close to Ayrton Senna's record of 41 victories.

With only three more opportunities to take a victory in 2022, Verstappen will have to wait until May next year at the earliest if he is to surpass Senna's record.

If he does this next season, he will start the hunt to overtake Vettel and Alan Prost.
