New engine for Leclerc, Verstappen eyes F1 record

Charles Leclerc will start Sunday’s US GP five places lower than he qualifies, as new double world champion Max Verstappen stands on the cusp of an all-time F1 record. As for Red Bull’s 2021 and 2022 drivers’ champion Verstappen, victory in Austin would equal Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel’s joint all-time record for the number of wins in a season – 13. Dr Helmut Marko insists that the Dutch driver is not motivated by records, declaring last week: “He’s not the type to go for records. According to Dutch GP boss Jan Lammers, however, “Max will want to win the last four races” of his dominant 2022 season. Fellow former Dutch F1 driver Christijan Albers agrees, telling De Telegraaf: “Max can break many records, like the most wins in one season.
