2022 F1 World Championship standings after the Belgian GP
Who is leading the 2022 F1 World Championship Drivers' points?
Red Bull’s reigning champion Verstappen scored a maximum 26 points at Spa-Francorchamps and his lead in the World Championship is up to 93 over team-mate Sergio Perez, who moves into second over Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc. The Ferrari driver suffered another troubled race and could only finish sixth after a late penalty for speeding in the pits as he attempted to grab the point for fastest lap.
Leclerc is now 98 points behind Verstappen. Carlos Sainz’s third place in Belgium moves him back ahead of Mercedes’ George Russell – but only by one point. His team-mate Lewis Hamilton’s first-lap exit has dropped him 24 points behind Russell.
Who is leading the 2022 F1 World Championship Constructors' points?
In the constructors’ points, Red Bull’s maximum 44-point haul in Belgium moves it 118 clear of Ferrari after the Scuderia’s sub-optimal day.
However, Mercedes lost ground on Ferrari in their battle for second by 11 points, opening the gap to 41. Alpine took a huge leap forward over McLaren at Spa, so the French marque is now 20 points ahead in fourth position.
Aston Martin and AlphaTauri both scored points, Aston closing the gap to five in the battle for eighth. Williams scored its fourth point of the season, but is still 20 points adrift.
