F1 Standings after 2022 Belgian GP

    Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez are now 1st and 2nd in the drivers' championship standings as Charles Leclerc and Ferrari have fallen back.


    Max Verstappen once again showed his championship calibre at the Belgian GP as the Red Bull driver put in a dominant performance from the back of the grid to secure his 9th victory of the 2022 F1 season.

    Verstappen started the race from 14th after taking a grid penalty for changing engine parts, but sliced through the pack to take the lead by Lap 18 and from there pulled an 18 second gap to teammate Sergio Perez in 2nd.

    Ferrari had no answer to the Dutchman, with Carlos Sainz forced to settle for 3rd and Charles Leclerc ending up in 6th after being handed a 5 second penalty for speeding in the pitlane.
