Ronaldo achieved this record whilst on the books of Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League in 2003.

Salah’s latest feat has undoubtedly made him a strong contender for the Ballon d’Or, as the era that was dominated by both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi appears to be coming to an end.

Max Verstappen holds off Lewis Hamilton to win US Grand Prix

Max Verstappen holds off Lewis Hamilton to win US Grand Prix

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen held off a hard charging Lewis Hamilton to extend his Formula 1 World Drivers’ Championship lead with victory at the US Grand Prix.

Verstappen opted to pit earlier than expected twice and on both occassions the decision paid off as the Dutchman was able to overtake his championship rival.

Hamilton can’t get DRS

Hamilton fought hard to get within the DRS zone in the final three laps of the race, but in the end Verstappen did enough to keep the Mercedes out of reach, though it was desperately close.

Verstappen held his nerve though as a mistake by Hamilton on the final lap ensured that the Red Bull didn’t have to fend off a last-ditch overtake attempt.

Red Bull’s second driver, Sergio Perez, rounded off the podium, a finish that strengthens the team’s bid for the constructor’s title with Valtteri Bottas only managing sixth.

Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc finished fourth again while Daniel Ricciardo came home fifth in his McLaren, while their respective teammates were seventh and eighth.

Yuki Tsunoda picked up some championship points with a ninth place finish and Sebastain Vettel’s late charge earned the final point.
