The Oracle Red Bull Racing team recently won the Formula One constructors’ world championship. On the other hand, Max Verstappen, their driver, won the F1 racers’ world title for the second year in a row. These are two outstanding results in one season. So incredible!

The final league took place on 20th November 2022 in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, where Max Verstappen won the F1 World Drivers’ Championship. As a result, he has amassed 454 points during the season.

The Dutch racer won a record-breaking 15 races during a thrilling season, exceeding the earlier record of 13 triumphs by Sebastian Vettel in 2013 and Michael Schumacher in 2004. He also finished in front of Charles Leclerc and his colleague Sergio Perez, winning the 2nd title of his career.

In addition, Verstappen was the only driver to successfully defend his championship, with four races remaining in the season. Hence, he has joined Sebastian Vettel, Michael Schumacher, and Nigel Mansell in this feat.

Generally, Max Verstappen has yet again proven to be an outstanding driver, given his 15 triumphs, two sprint racing wins, and seven pole positions for 2022. Because of this, he and his whole squad deserve the warmest congratulations for their incredible victory. TAG Heuer, a partner of the Oracle Red Bull Racing group from 2016, sent its best wishes.

In his statement, TAG Heuer CEO Frédéric Arnault congratulated Max Verstappen and the rest of the team on their outstanding accomplishments this year. He also added that winning the World Championship is an amazing feat; however, doing so twice in a row is far more remarkable. Max best reflected the company’s Don’t Crack Under Pressure philosophy on and off the racetrack by displaying exceptional talent and sportsmanship.

Frédéric went on to acknowledge Sergio Perez’s 3rd position after a great 2022 season and the teams’ constructor’s championship, which is a well-deserved credit for their performance and unwavering dedication. Indeed, they were overjoyed with the fantastic outcomes in every area.

With 17 race victories, the team had their most successful season of the year since the previous high record was 13 in 2013. Also, with a total of 759 points, Oracle Red Bull Racing surpassed their earlier constructor’s title score record of 650 in 2011.

With a racer getting into the top three in each race ever since the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, Oracle Red Bull has maintained an incredible string of podium finishes. In addition to the four straight wins the team did win between 2011 to 2014, they have now received their 5th world championship.

Max Verstappen, the reigning world winner, wore the TAG Heuer Monaco Special Edition watch given to him during the Monaco Grand Prix in spring for 2022’s last competition in Abu Dhabi. It is a recognizable square-shaped piece with race spirit, boldly crafted in black titanium with pink gold to evoke the heyday of the 1970s.

On the other hand, Sergio Perez donned his preferred TAG Heuer wristwatch, a custom-made, special-edition TAG Heuer Carrera chronograph. It features his distinctive tagline and no 11, making it an exceptional piece.
