Max Verstappen's record-breaking 2023 could still get better at the season ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, as he looks to seal the record for the percentage of laps led in a single season.
Whilst the dominant Dutchman will have his eyes firmly set on the chance of overtaking Sebastian Vettel and having third place to himself on the list of all-time race winners, he may inadvertedly set the bar extremely high for another all-time achievement.
Strictly speaking, as that was a much shorter season to the ones that we have in modern F1 with just 10 races, it should be a near-impossible record to break.
However, Verstappen has proven on many ocassions that he is the man to break age-old records, and currently sits ahead of Clark, Nigel Mansell, Vettel and Michael Schumacher on the all-time list, but it will not be officially sealed until the chequered flag in Abu Dhabi.
