Verstappen entered the Miami Grand Prix ranked No. 2 in Formula One behind the aforementioned Leclerc.

Since jumping on to the grandest of stages, the Belgium native has been absolutely dominant. He’s earned 22 victories and just won his first Grand Slam by taking the Austrian Grand Prix back in 2021.

Verstappen made history back in 2015 by becoming the youngest driver to compete in a Formula One event at the age of 17. One year later, Verstappen again made history by winning the Spanish Grand Prix at 18 — becoming the youngest driver to win a Formale One Gran Prix event.
