Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko marvels at team’s historic 100th F1 race victory

Red Bull’s dominance continues as Max Verstappen secured his 41st career victory at the Canadian Grand Prix, simultaneously marking Red Bull’s 100th triumph in Formula 1. Verstappen’s commanding performance, leading Fernando Alonso’s Aston Martin by over nine seconds, further solidified his lead in the championship, with a 69-point advantage over his teammate Sergio Perez.

This significant milestone places Verstappen on par with the legendary Ayrton Senna in terms of all-time winners. Since Sebastian Vettel’s breakthrough win in 2009, Verstappen joins a distinguished group of Red Bull drivers, including Vettel himself, Mark Webber, Daniel Ricciardo, and Perez, who have all tasted success on the top step of the podium.


Reflecting on this remarkable achievement, Red Bull Motorsport Advisor Helmut Marko paid tribute to the late Dietrich Mateschitz, co-founder of Red Bull, who passed away during the United States Grand Prix weekend last season. Marko expressed his awe and gratitude for reaching the milestone of 100 victories.

“To have 100 wins now is beyond our wildest imagination. It’s something we could never have dreamed of. It’s unfortunate that Mateschitz is no longer with us to witness this incredible accomplishment,” Marko remarked during an interview with Sky Sports following the race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Verstappen’s stellar performance, with six victories in the opening eight races, coupled with Perez’s two wins, further solidifies Red Bull’s position as a dominant force in Formula 1. The team’s relentless pursuit of success continues to pay dividends, leaving their competitors striving to match their extraordinary achievements.
