Before the mishap at the Singapore Grand Prix, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen was set to drive his team to achieve the record of winning all the races in the 2023 season. But unfortunately, he fell short at the race at Marina Bay while Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz went home with the trophy.
While many assumed that was the end of Red Bull’s dominance with an FIA investigation under his name, Verstappen jumped back at his former glory with a dazzling win at the Japanese Grand Prix last weekend.
When the 25-year-old was left troubled after the setback, many of his fans came out in his support in order to motivate him for the upcoming races. It was then that many spotted a popular name among the millions of fans that Max Verstappen has earned over the years. It is none other than the Hollywood actor, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who is known for his work in the highly-rated drama series ‘The Walking Dead’.

The fact that Morgan is a Red Bull fan is definitely not a surprise since Verstappen is definitely one of the most prominent Formula 1 drivers in recent times. Many, including former driver Sebastian Vettel, believe that the Dutchman is making history even after he broke his longstanding record in the race at Monza.
Will Max Verstappen win his third championship title in Qatar?
Max Verstappen is poised to accomplish a remarkable feat by winning his third consecutive Formula 1 world title. Verstappen’s decisive victory in the Japanese Grand Prix, which extended the gap over teammate Sergio Perez by a mind-blowing 177 points in the driver’s standings, laid the foundation for this win.
He holds the chance of nabbing the championship title during the Sprint race in Qatar in the coming week, a feat that has not occurred in the last 35 years.
🚨 | How Max Verstappen Can Win His Third World Championship In Qatar 🇶🇦?
For the Sprint Race:
i. If Max finishes P1 to P6 he will be made World Champion
ii. If Max finishes P7 provided Perez doesn’t win the race
iii. If Max finishes P8 provided Perez finishes P3 or lower

The Dutchman could become a three-time champion by placing sixth at the Qatar Grand Prix, which would be enough to secure the trophy. Perez, on the other hand, would need a race victory and Verstappen finishing beyond the top eight to maintain any hope of championship glory. And given the Mexican driver’s recent performance, the chances of a title win are quite low.
The Red Bull Racing team has excelled beyond all expectations this year, convincingly claiming their sixth constructors’ championship. They are just a few steps behind in leading Max Verstappen to his third consecutive triumph at the world championship. The stage is set and the world is ready to witness Verstappen win his very well-deserved victory at the upcoming race in Qatar.
