Reflecting on the race, Verstappen shared, “The whole race, I was struggling a lot with the brakes. I couldn’t really have the same feeling as yesterday, so that definitely made my race a bit tougher out here today. It was very close at the end and also with the backmarkers, the tyres are already going so it makes it more difficult.”

Despite the difficulties, Verstappen’s determination shone through, and he managed to secure the victory. Proud of his achievement, he expressed, “It’s incredible to win my 50th Grand Prix here. Very proud of course, and we will keep on trying to push for more.”

The significance of Verstappen’s 50th Grand Prix victory was not lost on the reporter on duty, Jenson Button, who asked him about the milestone. Verstappen’s response exemplified his continued hunger for success and his unwavering ambition to achieve even more.

Verstappen’s victory at the US Grand Prix is a testament to his perseverance and skill, showing that he can overcome challenging circumstances. As he looks ahead, Verstappen will undoubtedly continue to push the limits and strive for further triumphs in his Formula 1 journey.
