2022 F1 World Championship standings after the Hungarian GP – Motorsport US

Red Bull’s reigning champion Verstappen pulled out another 17 points over Ferrari drivers’ title rival Charles Leclerc, who led in Hungary before a poor strategy decision dropped him back to finish sixth.
Verstappen’s lead is now 80 points over Leclerc as he bids for a second successive drivers’ title. His Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez’s fifth position in Hungary means he’s within five points of Leclerc’s second spot in the points.
George Russell’s podium finish moves him two points ahead of Carlos Sainz in the second Ferrari into fourth in points.
Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton’s runner-up finish puts him with 10 of Sainz in sixth.
In the constructors’ points, Red Bull’s 35-point haul in Hungary moves it 97 clear of Ferrari after the Scuderia’s troubled day.
Mercedes outscored Ferrari by 14 points, closing the gap to 30. Alpine and McLaren tied on six points in Budapest, so the French marque four clear in fourth position.
The only other point scorer again was Aston Martin, which remains in ninth – now seven points behind AlphaTauri.

The traits that fuelled Alonso’s unexpected Aston Martin F1 move
Fernando Alonso’s bombshell switch to Aston Martin sent shockwaves through Formula 1, not least at Alpine that finds itself tangled in a contract standoff with Oscar Piastri. Not shy of a bold career move and with a CV punctuated by them, there were numerous hints that trouble was brewing.

Hungarian Grand Prix Driver Ratings 2022
The Hungarian Grand Prix race result, after a dry race held without safety car conditions, bore little resemblance to what was anticipated after qualifying. While certain drivers were nullified by some iffy strategy calls, others shone to grasp opportunities afforded to them in the last F1 race before the summer break
Why Ferrari had the strategy shocker that helped Verstappen win
After Max Verstappen’s difficult qualifying left him 10th on the grid for the Hungarian Grand Prix, few expected him to take an eighth victory of the 2022 Formula 1 season. Yet that’s precisely what happened as Ferrari converted second and third on the grid into fourth and sixth at the flag with a bungled strategy that cost Charles Leclerc yet more ground in the title race.
