Red Bull and Max Verstappen have taken control of the F1 standings ahead of the Montreal Grand Prix as the pressure mounts on Charles Leclerc and Ferrari.
No Formula 1 season is without twists and turns. The 2022 season is no different, largely because the sport seems to follow a simple adage: What goes around comes around.
Charles Leclerc looked might he could run away with the championship while Red Bull struggled with reliability issues in the opening weeks of the campaign. Now, it’s Ferrari who can’t seem to finish races while Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez have jumped ahead in the driver standings.
The Azerbaijan Grand Prix ended with Verstappen in first, Perez in second and Leclerc with a DNF next to his name.
The Montreal Grand Prix could provide the next big swing in one direction or another.
Ferrari’s recent troubles have allowed Red Bull to take a sizable lead in the constructors’ standings going into Montreal.
Meanwhile, Mercedes have managed to come within touching distance of Ferrari in second despite their difficult season so far.
The midfield battle between McLaren, Alpine and Alfa Romeo remains tight while AlphaTauri, Haas and Aston Martin are trying to get things right. As for Williams, they’re going to have to start praying for ways to score points.
