Max Verstappen Runs Perfect Race, Wins F1 Season Opener at Bahrain

Verstappen wins from the pole in the Bahrain Grand Prix to open the 2024 F1 season. The Dutch driver accomplished a perfect race by leading every lap and collecting the fastest lap in the race.

The Dutch National Anthem continues to haunt F1 fans who root for anyone but the driver of the No.1 Red Bull Oracle RB20.

Max Verstappen had a perfect race by the numbers, starting on the pole, leading every lap, collecting the fastest lap of the race, and ultimately winning the F1 Season Opener at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

After the race he said that he was happy for the finish because these 'perfect' days don't always happen, a seemingly odd take after his 55th win.

“It’s always really special to have these types of days," Verstappen said on his dominance.

Along with his 55 wins in his nine-year F1 career, Verstappen has three consecutive championships, 33 poles, and 31 fastest laps. He's technically right that not every race finishes perfectly for him but he's closer to infallibility than anyone else.
