2022 Qualifying:

The Dutchman currently holds the record for the most victories in a single Formula One season, breaking Michael Schumacher’s (2004) and Sebastian Vettel’s (2015) previous mark of 13. (2013).

Verstappen, whose Red Bull team chose a soft-medium tyre strategy, won the race by about 15 seconds over Hamilton, leaving the latter to wonder why Mercedes switched from their starting pair of mediums to hards.

Practice:

Russell was also dissatisfied with his strategy and kept requesting that Mercedes pit once more and change to soft tyres.

Although this failed to give the Silver Arrows a chance to win the race in the closing laps, the stop for soft tyres with two laps remaining did result in the fastest lap.

After Fernando Alonso’s agonising late retirement, Esteban Ocon finished eighth. Valtteri Bottas of the Alfa Romeo team and Lando Norris of the McLaren were the only other competitors.
