Australian GP 2022

Ferrari’s drivers, Leclerc and Sainz, sit on the top of the drivers standings after two races in the new generation cars. Of course, Verstappen and Perez had a DNF and lost several points – still, Ferrari has more than double the points of the closest competitor. Due to restrictions and logistical challenges relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Melbourne GP was cancelled in 2021 but returns this year with several changes in its layout and four DRS zones! How many times are we going to see Charles and Max passing each other?

The model predicts Leclerc to qualify ahead of Verstappen. It still overestimates Bottas’ chances in both quali and race – I think the model will adjust once more races are completed. Can Mercedes close the gap to the front-running teams? Can Magnussen make it to the podium and repeat his amazing first-race feat?

As always, you can access the power predictions here.

        1. Yes. I’m not making any predictions for the sprint race itself (too much limited data for the moment) but I will publish quali and race predictions before Friday.
