F1 Breaking: Max Verstappen Is The 2022 World Champion

After a dramatic Japanese Grand Prix, Max Verstappen has won the 2022 F1 World Championship.

Thanks to a 5-second penalty for Charles Leclerc after it was confirmed that he’d gained an advantage from running off the track, the Dutch racing driver has become the 2022 world champion for the second time. With teammate Sergio Perez coming second and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc third, this puts Verstappen in a point lead that can’t be caught.

This will be Verstappen’s 12th win of the season.

Verstappen drove an incredible race. Even in the difficult conditions of the GP, he maintained a strong 20+ second lead throughout the majority of the race in a true masterclass of racing. He’s now fighting for the record of most races won during a season, currently held by Sebastian Vettel, of which he only needs to win one more race.
