How the Abu Dhabi GP impacted 2022 F1 world championship drivers' points

Verstappen scored 25 points at Yas Marina and ended the season 146 clear at the top of the standings.

Leclerc’s second place in Abu Dhabi meant he also claimed second in points after a straight fight with Perez that came down to the last lap of racing action. Holding two-stopper Perez off on his one-stop strategy, Leclerc took the spot by three points after 22 races.

Mercedes’ George Russell cemented fourth, while Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz grabbed fifth from the second Mercedes driver, Lewis Hamilton, after the seven-time champion suffered his first technical failure of the season. Sainz took the spot by six points, but was 29 in arrears of Russell.

Behind McLaren’s Lando Norris, Esteban Ocon won the battle of the Alpines, 11 points ahead of Fernando Alonso – who suffered yet another mechanical failure in the final round.

Valtteri Bottas (Alfa Romeo) claimed 10th, while Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) lost 11th to Daniel Ricciardo (McLaren) on countback after just failing to pass him on track in the closing stages.

Elsewhere, his Aston teammate Lance Stroll claimed 15th from Mick Schumacher (Haas).

The late Mauro Forghieri played a key role in Ferrari’s mid-1960s turnaround, says STUART CODLING, and his pretty, intricate 1512 was among the most evocative cars of the 1.5-litre era.
