Which teams adapted best to F1's new 2022 rules? – Autosport

When a set of regulations reaches maturity, a mid-term report during an F1 season will often state the obvious. Some teams will continue to do well and others will fail. There may be some anomalies which have determined results, such as a specific reliability problem for a team or a driver change that isn’t working out as expected but, in general, the status quo doesn’t change much from year to year.
The 2022 season is somewhat different. An entirely new set of regulations was introduced that didn’t just change detail but actually altered the essential way a car is conceived and, as often happens in cases like this, some got it right and others struggled. However, just like in 2009 when fundamental changes were made, the interest lies not just in who got it right out of the box but more in who has been capable of improving more than others, and where lie the strengths and weaknesses of the various teams.
