Main Highlights

F1 Drivers Brazil

Verstappen had to break a sweat at COTA. After losing pole position for a track limits infraction, the 2023 champion started down in sixth place. But it wasn’t enough to stop his charge. By lap 28, the Ducthman had already made his way to the top of the order, and, despite having to nurse a brake problem throughout the evening, Verstappen did enough to secure his 50th career victory in F1.

F1 standings: Fastest Lap Awards

In every Grand Prix, there’s a driver who sets the fastest time for whizzing around the track. And it’s not always the race winner…

With the ‘DHL Fastest Lap Award’, DHL has set a new standard for speed since 2007.

In each race, one driver sets the fastest lap, and the award goes to the driver who sets the most laps throughout the season. 

And if the winner of the fastest lap finishes in the Top 10, he will be awarded 1 point towards the Championship! 

Below is how the 2023 fastest lap awards look like after the US Grand Prix.

Yuki Tsunoda scored the first fastest lap of his F1 career in the US GP. It came courtesy of a late pit stop for soft tyres. With enough of a gap to 11th-placed Alexander Albon, Tsunoda pitted at the end of lap 54, securing the bonus point with a 1:38.139 on the final lap.

F1 2023 Predictions

Max Verstappen’s 2023 season will likely end up as one for the history books. If the Dutchman scores another victory, he will break his own record for the most wins in a season, and will also break Michael Schumacher’s 19-year old record for the highest winning percentage in a single season.
