And the Belgian GP trophy appeared to suffer a similar fate on Sunday.

Verstappen, 25, breezed to an eighth successive victory as he finished 22 seconds ahead of team-mate Sergio Perez.

During the post-race antics, a host of Champagne bottles were popped immediately after the Red Bull garage posed for photos.

As Verstappen raced away to try and take cover, he left his trophy behind.

And amongst the chaotic scene, his gong suffered some damage.

The two-time world champion turned around to get a look at his trophy, before shouting: “It’s broken again.”

It was a minor hiccup in an otherwise perfect weekend for the championship leader.

Verstappen now has 10 wins from 12 races in the 2023 season – and 45 in his F1 career.

A victory at his home grand prix in Zandvoort at the end of August would see him equal Sebastian Vettel‘s record of nine consecutive wins.

And he is also on course to break his own record of 15 wins in a single season.

He boasts a huge 125-point lead over Perez – with Fernando Alonso a further 40 points adrift.
