Red Bull is running away with the 2023 Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship with their two drivers ahead of Aston Martin.
The Miami Grand Prix at the Miami International Autodrome was another example of Red Bull’s dominance in the 2023 season Formula 1 season.
Max Verstappen overcame a disastrous qualifying session and a P9 grid position to win the race ahead of team-mate Sergio Perez, who was more than 20 seconds ahead of third-placed Fernando Alonso of Aston Martin.
Red Bull five-for-five to start the 2023 season in terms of standing on top of the podium. They are four out of five for securing 1-2 finishes. Verstappen leads driver rankings 14 points above Perez and Alonso is another 30 points behind Perez.
Aston Martin is second in the Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship. But they have fewer points than both Red Bull drivers individually.
Given how far ahead Red Bull have been this year and the fact that it seems highly unlikely that anyone will challenge them, a three-way battle between Verstappen, Perez and Aston Martin for total points could be entertaining to say the least. to watch.
Alonso scored 75 points over five races (15 to be exact every race weekend), while teammate Lance Stroll only scored 27. With 102 points, they are ahead of Perez by 3 and Verstappen by 17.
- Max Verstappen – 119
- Sergio Perez – 105 (-14)
- Aston Martin – 102 (-17)
Winning the world title ahead of a second-placed constructor is something that has not been so rare in the entire history of Formula 1.
24 times the world champion single-handedly beat the second constructor. This happened most recently in 2013 when Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel beat Mercedes, 372 to 348.
Niki Lauda and Michael Schumacher have done it more times than anyone else with three per person, the former doing it in 1975, 1977 and 1984 and the latter in 2001, 2002 and 2004.
However, it is extremely rare for both Formula 1 team drivers to beat the other constructor.
This has only happened four times in Formula 1 history, most recently in 1996 when Damon Hill scored 97 points and won the world championship. Williams teammate Jacques Villeneuve scored 78 points. The second-placed constructor, Ferrari, only scored 70 points.
Given the pace of the RB19, the 2023 season could very well see the first such result in 27 years. While everyone likes to try to undermine the duo and create controversy where there is nonethe strength of this team is hard to mitigate.
Following the cancellation of the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix at Imola, sixth race of the 2023 season is the Monaco Grand Prix, which is due to take place at the Circuit de Monaco on Sunday, May 28. Verstappen won the 2021 race and Perez will win it in 2022.
