The 2022 F1 season is fully underway, with Ferrari surging past last year’s top contenders, Red Bull and Mercedes, to stand in P1 and 2. British seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton has been struggling with Mercedes’ 2022 car, placing him in fifth, behind Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and his own teammate, George Russell.
The action will continue in the next F1 race, the Australian Grand Prix, held on the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit. The 2.579-kilometre rack will see the full roster of drivers back on the grid, battling it out for points in the early stages of this year’s championship.
