F1 Standings after 2022 Australian Grand Prix

Charles Leclerc continued his good form this season, and took a dominant win at the 2022 Australian GP, so how do the Formula 1 Drivers' and Constructors Championship standings look?


Charles Leclerc won the Australian GP to take his second victory of the 2022 Formula 1 season, and further extend his lead atop the F1 Drivers’ Standings with the Ferrari driver now 34 points ahead of Mercedes’ George Russell.

World Champion Max Verstappen suffered his second retirement of the F1 season after a mechanical issue with his Red Bull, and has now dropped to sixth in the Drivers’ Standings 46 points behind leader Leclerc. Carlos Sainz found himself out the race after just two laps, as he spun his Ferrari and ended up in a gravel trap.

Williams will be delighted with the weekend at Albert Park as Alex Albon picked up the team’s first point of the season, leaving Aston Martin as the only team yet to pick up any points in the 2022 F1 campaign.
