A last-lap mistake from Leclerc in the Japanese GP gave Max Verstappen the chance to celebrate his 2nd F1 World Championship. If there were any questions over his title last season (for all the right reasons), 2022 was his year – he was superior to everyone.

Congratulations to Max and Red Bull for this dominant season!
Do you think the 2-time world champ will ease his pressure and allow others take some the victory easily? There’s no doubt Max will be as hungry as ever to win each and every of the remaining races – he has nothing to lose anyway. One more race win and he will match the record number of wins within a single season! Of course, nowadays each season has more races compared to 10 or 20 years ago but that’s another story. Let’s see where the win counter stops increasing…
