2022 Azerbaijan GP

The 2022 Azerbaijan GP was which is held at the Captial city of Baku. This track has mostly generated some great races, but we got one of the biggest snooze fests in 2022. Max and Perez got Red Bull a 1-2 and Ferrari is probably bathing in their own tears after a double DNF.

2022 Monaco GP

The 2022 Monaco GP again raises the question whether Monaco really should remain on the calendar. Well as Monaco GPs go this was probably one of the most exciting Monaco GPs in recent history. Ferrari yet again pulled off a debacle of a strategy which stole Charles of a win. The Monegasque must wait at least another year to win his home race. The strategy played into RBR’s hands and gifted them a 1-3 where Checo won his first Monaco GP and became the most successful Mexican Driver in F1 History.

Today we have a special guest, Aditya Bhat, who is an F1 content creator. His content leans towards the tech side of things in F1, consider giving him a follow at @bhat.tech on Instagram.

2022 Spanish GP

The 2022 Spanish GP was possibly the best Spanish GP we have had in the recent history. With RBR gaining a massive lead over Ferrari, they overtook them in both the WDC and the WCC. With some bad luck for Charles and some great strategy calls by the Red Bull pitwall , they managed to convert a 2-3 into a 1-2!

2022 Miami GP

F1 Fanfiction Episode 39 2022 Miami GP

The maiden 2022 Miami GP which is the 2nd race in the US was not the most exciting race of the season yet delivered some great racing. Verstappen came out and Charles fell short but Ferrari came out with a 2-3 from it so not too bad for them. There was a lot of controversy related to the Miami GP with the fake Marina and the fake beach but nonetheless the track is very stellar and produced some good racing.

2022 Australian GP

We return to the Australian GP after a long 2 years wait. The 2022 Australian GP was the 3rd race in the season, and it is clear that Charles and Ferrari are in it for the championship. Flawless performance by Charles while Max’s car noped out again. The race down under was exciting with action all around the field. An awesome performance by Albon, who dragged the back marker Williams into their first point of the season.
