F1 Standings after 2022 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix

    Max Verstappen got his season back on track with a sensational late pass to take victory at the 2022 Saudi Arabian GP, so how do the Drivers' and Constructors Championship standings look?


    Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc put on a show at the 2022 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, with the Red Bull driver coming out on top by the slimmest of margins. However, with the reigning World Champion having failed to score points in Bahrain, how do the 2022 F1 Drivers’ Championship standings look?

    Leclerc led for much of the race after pole sitter Sergio Perez was caught out by an untimely pit stop. The Red Bull driver came in one lap too early, as Nicholas Latifi‘s crash and subsequent Safety Car dropped the Mexican down to fourth.

    This opened the door for Leclerc to take the lead, a position he held until the closing laps, when Verstappen‘s Red Bull proved too much, giving him his first win of the season. Carlos Sainz rounded out the podium by finishing third, with Leclerc taking home an extra point for fastest lap.
