F1 2022: Spanish GP Starting Grid

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc is on pole position in Spain, followed by world champion Max Verstappen in the Red Bull


Charles Leclerc took his fourth pole position of the 2022 Formula 1 season at the Spanish GP, with a blistering lap at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, as he beat out Red Bull’s Max Verstappen

It wasn’t plain saying for the front row pairing, as the Ferrari driver spun on his first outing in Q3, before the Dutchman had a DRS problem and couldn’t complete his second flying run. 

Carlos Sainz rounds out the top three with the Ferrari driver just ahead of George Russell in the Mercedes.
