2022 Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix highlights

Max Verstappen made light work of his grid penalties to win the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix from P14 on the grid in a Red Bull one-two backed up by Sergio Perez, while pole-sitter Carlos Sainz finished P3 for Ferrari. Verstappen made quick work of the cars ahead, sweeping into P3 by Lap 8 with only Perez and Sainz to beat. Sainz pitted from softs to mediums on Lap 12 when Perez allowed Verstappen past and into the lead. Leclerc made a late pit stop for soft tyres in an effort to take the fastest lap, but missed out on the bonus point and only just held on to P5 ahead of Fernando Alonso. By lap 12 he had taken the lead, which he held until his first stop on lap 16 for P Zero Yellow medium tyres. Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz used the soft tyre to lead from the pole, maintaining his advantage until his first stop on lap 12 – and using all three compounds to finish on the podium.
