Verstappen and Hamilton team up for record as milestones shattered - United States GP stats
GPFans Staff & Sundaram Ramaswami

Max Verstappen overcame a Red Bull pit stop disaster and a stern challenge from Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton to take victory at the United States Grand Prix.

In a dramatic event, the Dutchman chased down his rival to take the lead with six laps to go as Red Bull clinched the constructors' championship.

With a record attendance of 440,000 spectators across the weekend, Austin was treated to a fascinating spectacle with incredible racing action up and down the order.

So at the end of a pulsating weekend, GPFans brings you the best stats and facts from the Circuit of the Americas.

Milestones for double champion

Verstappen registered his 13th win of the season, equalling the record for most in a season set by Michael Schumacher [2004] and Sebastian Vettel [2013].

It was win number 33 for the reigning champion, matching his nominated car number.

Each of Verstappen’s milestone podiums in F1, his first, 25th, 50th and 75th, have been victories.

The Dutchman is the first driver since Alan Jones - at Long Beach and Las Vegas in 1981 - to win two US races in the same year.

End of one era, the start of the next?

Red Bull clinched its fifth Constructors’ title in F1 and the first since 2013, bringing an end to Mercedes' era of dominance.

The Milton Keynes-based team has now finished first or second in 18 straight races, a new record.

It was Red Bull's eighth race win on the bounce, leaving it one short of its best streak of nine successive victories set in 2013.

Leclerc's personal best as Sainz suffers further pain

Leclerc made it to the podium for the fifth race in a row, the best podium streak of his career.

It was the first time Leclerc has finished in the top three having started lower than seventh on the grid.

Team-mate Carlos Sainz suffered his third opening-lap retirement this year and the second in a row.

The Spaniard failed to score on US soil for the first time in his career.

Hamilton's happy hunting ground

Hamilton has featured on the podium in 10 of the 11 US Grand Prix he has competed in, including victory at Indianapolis in 2007. The Mercedes driver finished fourth in 2013.

The seven-time champion led a race for the fifth time this year. Hamilton has led a lap at every race at COTA since 2014.

Tsunoda ends miserable run

Yuki Tsunoda finished tenth to collect points for the first time since the Spanish GP, 13 races ago.

This could become ninth if Alpine's appeal against a post-race penalty for Fernando Alonso is dismissed.

Pierre Gasly was handed two separate time penalties following a safety car period infringement, which dropped him out of the points. The Frenchman is yet to score on in the United States.

Bottas hits barren run

Valtteri Bottas ended his race beached in the gravel and has now gone ten races without scoring a point. He last scored at the Canadian GP.

Vettel's race-lead joy

Sebastian Vettel led a race for the first time since the 2021 Azerbaijan GP, ticking over 3,500 laps led in F1. Only Schumacher and Hamilton have amassed more.

Haas' home-race hero

With a ninth-place finish, Kevin Magnussen scored his first points Stateside since his rookie season in 2014. It was Haas’ first points at a home race since 2016.

Alonso's appeal dependent, this could become eighth.

COTA's front row magic and surprise safety car

COTA hosted its 10th F1 race, all of which have been won from the front row.

Bottas’ spin on lap 16 brought out the safety car for the first time in a US GP since 2015.

Every US race in the hybrid era has witnessed a minimum of three retirements.

Verstappen and Hamilton finished one-two for the 32nd time, the most by a driver pairing in any order in F1 history.
