Red Bull Racing continues to dominate the F1 grid. Max Verstappen secured the 2022 F1 Driver World Championship a few weeks ago by winning the Japan GP. Then Red Bull went P1 (Verstappen) and P3 (Perez) at COTA USGP to secure the Constructors’ Championship. Sunday at the Mexico GP the Bulls went P1 (Verstappen) and P3 (Perez) again, with Verstappen collecting his 14th win on the season, setting a new F1 single season win record. And with 2 races left in the 2022 F1 season, Verstappen can increase the record if he performs as he has recently with 3 straight wins.
