Max Verstappen jokes it would be ‘terrible’ to be stuck on same number of career wins as Lewis Hamilton’s car number as he takes dig at rival after victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen said it would be ‘terrible’ to remain stuck on the same number of career wins as Lewis Hamilton’s car number following his crushing triumph at the Hungarian Grand Prix. The perfect dozen includes the final round of last season in Abu Dhabi, eclipsing McLaren’s 11 in a row in 1988 when Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost were at the wheel. ‘Twelve wins in a row is just incredible,’ added Verstappen, who is now 110 points clear at the summit of the world championship on his unstoppable march towards a hat-trick of titles. Verstappen, 25, crossed the line more than half-a-minute clear of runner-up Lando Norris to record his ninth win of the season and retain Red Bull’s chance of becoming the first team in F1 history to complete a perfect campaign.
