F1 2022: Saudi Arabian GP Starting Grid

    Red Bull's Sergio Perez is on pole position, followed by world championship leader Charles Leclerc in the Ferrari


    After an extremely eventful 2022 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix Qualifying session, the starting grid for Sunday’s race has been set with Red Bull’s Sergio Perez on pole position.

    Both Ferrari drivers had themselves on provisional pole, before being usurped by Perez in the last seconds of Q3, meaning Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz will be second and third on the grid, respectively. 

    Max Verstappen could only put his Red Bull fourth, but the biggest surprise came as Lewis Hamilton failed to get his Mercedes out of Q1.   

    There was a delay to Qualifying of around an hour following a horrific crash involving Mick Schumacher in the Haas as he hit the wall at Turn 12. Thankfully, he has no injuries but was taken o hospital as a precaution and as a result he won’t take part in the race.
