Who is leading the 2022 F1 world championship drivers' points?

Red Bull’s two-time world champion Verstappen scored 25 points in Austin, extending his lead in the world championship to 124 points over Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.

Leclerc retook the runner-up spot in the championship from Verstappen’s teammate Sergio Perez, despite taking a bigger grid penalty after qualifying at COTA, but only by a couple of points in a battle that looks likely to run to the end of the season.

MercedesGeorge Russell pulled out 11 points on Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz in fourth, having spun out Sainz at the first corner for which he received a five-second penalty. The Spaniard was forced to retire with a water leak after the opening-lap contact.

Lewis Hamilton’s second place takes him within four points of Sainz.

Soon-to-retire Sebastian Vettel’s third points finish on the trot, after a brilliant drive, takes him within 10 points of Valtteri Bottas’s 10th position. Behind them, Kevin Magnussen overtook Pierre Gasly for 13th.
