2022 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix highlights

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won an epic battle over Charles Leclerc at the 2022 Formula 1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix with Carlos Sainz completing the podium behind his Ferrari teammate – as pole-sitter, Sergio Perez had to settle for fourth after pitting just before a pivotal Safety Car. That proved to be unfortunate; Williams’ Nicholas Latifi crashed at the final corner on the next lap and triggered a VSC then Safety Car, with Leclerc, Verstappen and Sainz capitalising. When the VSC finished on Lap 41, Verstappen was within a second of leader Leclerc – and now came round two of their brilliant 2022 rivalry. Again on Lap 43, Verstappen attempted a move but locked up in unison with the Ferrari into the final corner, the Ferrari keeping P1. The fastest race lap was also less than a second slower than the equivalent lap on the same compound last year.
