As the checkered flag marked his triumph, Verstappen moved closer to a historic milestone. With this win, he notched up his eleventh win of the season and matched Sebastian Vettel’s record of nine consecutive wins in Formula One, a feat achieved by Vettel during his 2013 championship campaign while driving for Red Bull.

Verstappen’s connection to his home crowd was evident as he stood for the national anthem before the race, an experience that gave him a strong emotional boost. Despite adverse weather conditions threatening his performance, Verstappen’s determination remained unshaken.

The race saw early rain, prompting Verstappen’s teammate Sergio Perez to opt for wet-weather tires and briefly overtake the reigning champion. However, Verstappen swiftly responded by changing tires a lap later, demonstrating his dominance over both Perez and the rest of the field.
