Belgian-Dutch racing driver Max Emilian Verstappen has set new record as he won with historical margin of victory at Sunday’s Mexico City Grand Prix.

The Bull driver earned his 14th victory of the year after starting on pole, which is the most in single season in Formula One history.

Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel had previously won 13 in single campaign, in 2004 and 2013 respectively.

Verstappen was simply unstoppable this past weekend, taking the lead from the start and escaping George Russell, Sergio Perez, and Sir Lewis Hamilton.

The Bulls and the Mercedes ran different strategies, with the Silver Arrows running the hard tyres under the belief that their opponents would lose at the end of the race or even pit again as their medium tyres wore out.

But Verstappen and Perez managed their tyres comfortably to the finish, and the Dutchman was able to stroll to the checkered flag with 15-second lead over Hamilton in the second. It was not to be for Hamilton and Russell.

Home favourite Perez rounded off the podium, much to the delight of the fans.

Of course the start helped me out lot for the rest of the race,’ Verstappen said post-race.

‘We were also on different strategy to the other cars around us but again, an incredible result.

‘The pace of the car was really nice. We had to look after our tyres because it was really long stint on the mediums but we made it work. It’s an incredible atmosphere and we love to come here. It’s been an incredible year so far, we are definitely enjoying it and we’ll try to go for more [victories].’
