Max Verstappen Secures Historic Third Consecutive F1 Title Without Even Racing in Grand Prix

, Max Verstappen Secures Historic Third Consecutive F1 Title Without Even Racing in Grand Prix

In a historic first, Max Verstappen has clinched his third Formula 1 title without even driving in the Grand Prix. The Red Bull ace secured the championship after finishing second in the Qatar GP sprint race.

Verstappen Wins Championship without a Grand Prix

Despite not winning the sprint race, Verstappen's second-place finish was enough for him to secure the Drivers Championship title. This marks Verstappen's third consecutive world crown, with six races still to go in the season.

Pressure Mounts on Sergio Perez

Sergio Perez's poor performance and a crash in the sprint race made it impossible for Verstappen's championship challenge to be taken to the wire. Perez has faced criticism from Red Bull's motorsport advisor and is under pressure to justify his place in the team.

Verstappen's Dominant Season

Verstappen's victory in Qatar adds to his season of unparalleled dominance. He has won 13 out of 16 races so far, breaking records along the way. The 26-year-old has rewritten the record books by winning 10 races in a row, surpassing former Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel's record set in 2013.
