An incident packed 2022 British Grand Prix saw Carlos Sainz take advantage of a late Safety Car to take the chequered flag his Ferrari to get his first ever win in Formula 1.
The race was stopped after just 21 seconds when George Russell and Guanyu Zhou came together at the start with the Alfa Romeo driver’s car skidding upside down along the pit straight before flipping over the tyre barrier at Turn 1. Thankfully the Chinese driver was given the all clear after a visit to the medical centre.
A late Safety Car shook things up as Sainz, Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez all stopped for soft tyres with leader Charles Leclerc staying out on old hard tyres. Then on the restart Sainz took the lead and after a spectacular three car battle Perez moved up to second and Hamilton eventually took third.
