F1 2022 Brazilian Grand Prix – Qualifying results

Haas F1 driver Kevin Magnussen took a shock pole position for the 2022 Brazilian GP Sprint Race


Kevin Magnussen has taken a sensational pole position for the 2022 Brazilian GP, after changeable track conditions and a Red Flag played out brilliantly for the Haas driver. 

Charles Leclerc started Q3 on Intermediate tyres and after attempting a flying lap, the Monegasque quickly pitted for Soft tyres. While George Russell put his Mercedes in the gravel trap at Turn 4 which brought out the Red Flag. 

That means Magnussen will take his first ever pole position in Formula 1, and will start the Sprint Race on Saturday on the front row. 

Q2 saw more drama as track conditions were changing with each passing minute. Both Aston Martin cars were unable to make it into the final session while there was more misery for Daniel Ricciardo in the McLaren who will start the Sprint in 14th. 

A frantic Q1 session saw all drivers start on Intermediate tyres, but as conditions improved slick tyres came into play and the times tumbled with Valtteri Bottas, last year’s pole sitter, and his Alfa Romeo teammate Guanyu Zhou eliminated. Mick Schumacher is dead last, just behind Yuki Tsunoda in the AlphaTauri
