Max Verstappen sealed a third successive Formula 1 world championship by finishing second behind Oscar Piastri in the Qatar Grand Prix Sprint on Saturday.

Becoming the 11th driver to reach at least three titles and just the fifth to win a hat-trick of titles in a row, Verstappen’s triumph was confirmed when his Red Bull team-mate and nearest challenger Sergio Perez crashed out on lap 11, sealing one of the most impressive and dominant seasons in F1 history.

Verstappen is the first driver to clinch a title in a Sprint event – the short-form race introduced onto select Saturdays from 2021 – and does so with six Grands Prix in the season still to go, starting with Sunday’s race in Qatar at 6pm, live on Sky Sports.

Verstappen joins some of the sport’s most famous names on three titles, including Ayrton Senna, Niki Lauda and Jackie Stewart.

Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher share the outright record of seven.
