Formula 1 has been away for its month-long Summer break, and what a return yesterday was!🔥
F1 came to the legendary Spa-Francorchamps for the Belgian GP (which also happens to be one of my favourites)- and Max Verstappen started right back from where he left off.
– Starting P14, the defending champ made easy work of the entire grid, taking P1 in just 12 laps of 7 km track, winning the race by over 18 seconds.
His Red Bull Racing & Red Bull Technology teammate Sergio Perez finished P2 : yet another 1-2 for the RB pair.
– The woes at the Scuderia Ferrari garage were far from over, as the pole-sitter Carlos Sainz finished P3 while his teammate and previous title contender Charles Leclerc had, let’s just say, a bad day at the office – finishing P6 after a late penalty.
– Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team’s 7-time World Champion crashed out with Alpine’s 2-time Champ Alonso on lap 1, ending the Brit’s race. His teammate Russell meanwhile finished in the top 5 yet again- at P4 ahead of Alonso.
– Ocon, Vettel, Gasly and Albon finished in the top 10 as the close battles of the midfield continued.
With a massive 93-point lead over his teammate, the dominant Max Verstappen looks the favored candidate for the 2022 championship.
We go to the Dutch GP, next week.❤️
