Results of the F1 French Grand Prix 2022

F1 Championship standings updated after French Grand Prix.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won the 2022 French Grand Prix for a third time. It was his second consecutive win at the Circuit Paul Ricard, beating Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton (+10.587) and George Russell (+16.495). Charles Leclerc had a unlucky day after he was forced to retire from Sunday’s race after his vehicle failed to start

Verstappen has 233 points in the 2022 F1 standings after seven wins this season, which is unsurprising. Despite losing some ground to Verstappen, Leclerc sits in second place with 170 points.

The odds for Verstappen to win the championship are at -700 on DraftKings Sportsbook, followed by Leclerc at +450 and Hamilton at +1600. The odds for those left in the field increase dramatically, with George Russell at +5000 to win. F1 will crown its champion in 2022 after ten more races.

Throughout Sunday’s race at Circuit Paul Ricard, Leclerc had been the dominant force, qualifying first and holding Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton at bay.

After losing the back end on lap 18, the Monegasque driver crashed into the tyre wall, allowing Verstappen to take the lead and never be challenged.

George Russell sneaked third behind Hamilton following Sergio Perez’s virtual safety car, making it a weekend for Mercedes to celebrate. Ferrari’s confused race strategy ultimately saw Carlos Sainz take P5 when it looked like he might be on the podium.
