F1 2022: Belgian GP Starting Grid

Ferrari's Carlos Sainz is on pole position, followed by Sergio Perez in the Red Bull after a slew of grid penalties

-

Despite brilliant qualifying performance from Max Verstappen, it will be Carlos Sainz in the Ferrari who starts the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix from pole position, as the Red Bull driver dropped to 15th place following a grid penalty.

There were a number of drivers taking engine penalties which moves them down the grid order, with Verstappen, who was quickest in Qualifying, joined by Charles Leclerc, Esteban Ocon, Lando Norris Guanyu Zhou and Mick Schumacher at the back of the grid, while Valtteri Bottas only incurred a 15-place penalty.

That means we have a starting grid which is completely different to that which was set in Qualifying, as Fernando Alonso moved up to third, alongside Lewis Hamilton in fourth. Alex Albon in the Williams starts sixth.
