Max Verstappen is the racer to beat at present. But it does not look so easy for any driver to do so at the moment. The Dutchman has won six races in a row. The only driver who was able to beat him this season was his teammate Sergio Perez. But Checo has been highly inconsistent this season. In the last six races, he got two podium finishes but has not been able to use the superiority of the RB19 car as well as his teammate has done. There have been multiple issues in Q3 for Sergio Perez.

On the other hand, the worst Max Verstappen has done so far is finishing at P2 twice to let his teammate win in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and in Baku, Azerbaijan. Nonetheless, after ten races at present, Verstappen is enjoying a healthy 99 points lead over his teammate Sergio Perez who is in second place. Moreover, the current double-time champion told RacingNews365 that it is great that his team has finished on top every time this season so far. That is always the aim of the Austrian team. The Dutchman also informed us about the new upgrades that Red Bull will introduce in Hungary next weekend.

The current constructor’s champion has touched the record of McLaren’s 1988 epic performance. Stretching to the last season, Red Bull has won 11 races in a row so far. If they win the next race in Budapest, Hungary, they will create history in the sport of Formula One. Moreover, Max Verstappen expressed his excitement about new upgrades that are coming in the Hungarian Grand Prix. What are the new upgrades Red Bull is planning to bring in Budapest?

According to Verstappen, the new upgrades would target drag, low, medium, and high speeds along with the DRS effect and also tire wear, etc. He was not kidding about that. It was scary for the other teams because the RB19 was, anyway, the fastest car on the grid. Hence, the question arises of how much faster the Austrian team is planning to get the car. But the Red Bull fans and almost all of the Netherlands folks will welcome the upgrades if it helps the team maintain their winning streak. Max Verstappen won 15 races last season which was a record in itself. But it seems like the Dutchman is eager to break his own record. There is no doubt that Verstappen is the fastest driver on the planet at present, but what more history can he create is what every F1 fan is waiting to see.

On the other hand, the rival team, Mercedes, is busy examining McLaren’s new design of its MCL60, which is a copy of RB19. The Brackley team is eager to introduce similar changes if it helps them end their win drought. The McLaren team has done exceedingly well in improving their results since the Austrian Grand Prix.

Lando Norris finished fourth in the Red Bull Ring circuit. But in the British Grand Prix, Norris gained a podium finish beating Lewis Hamilton to end at P2. Later, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff and star driver pointed at the similar side pods of MCL60 to that of RB19. Even Red Bull boss Christian Horner agreed that McLaren copied their design.
