Max Verstappen’s victory in the United States Grand Prix last week means he equals the record for most wins per driver in a single Formula 1 season. With three rounds to go and having won seven rounds in the last eight, it would be a shock if he didn’t break the record.

The Mexico Grand Prix completes the second part of a North American F1 double-header as we approach the end of the 2022 season.
