20.40 Verstappen however confirmed himself to be an exceptional driver, the best ever in hand-to-hand combat. Ferrari is expected to face a very tough challenge to beat him between now and the end of November. We repeat: everything will be decided with development.

20.39 Sainz is on the podium for now, there are no communications from the jury.

20.38 Leclerc and Verstappen exchanged a thumb immediately after the arrival. Alla Fonzie, to understand …

20.36 Ferrari was faster in the corners, but slower in the straight due to load issues. Leclerc was unlucky on the penultimate lap: there he was really in the wake of Verstappen, he would certainly have attacked him, but the exposure of the yellow flag following the contact between Albon and Stroll prevented the Monegasque from trying.

20.34 Ferrari was preferred with medium tires, Red Bull had something more with hard tires in the final. However, we are talking about two essentially equivalent cars: development during the season will be decisive. Mercedes is a long way off at the moment, paying one second per lap on pace.

20.32 Chris Horner (Red Bull team principal) immediately went to shake hands with Mattia Binotto.

20.32 Attention, unwelcome twist. Sainz is investigated: he may not have slowed down sufficiently under the yellow flags regime.

20.31 Until the 38th lap Leclerc seemed in control, although Verstappen was at 1 ″ 5. The Virtual Safety Car changed everything, as the Dutchman approached under the second.

20.30 The order of arrival of the race:

1 Max VERSTAPPEN Red Bull RacingLEADER 1
2 Charles LECLERC Ferrari + 0.549 1
3 Carlos SAINZ Ferrari + 8,097 1
4 Sergio PEREZ Red Bull Racing + 10,800 1
5 George RUSSELL Mercedes + 32.732 1
6 Esteban OCON Alpine + 56.017 1
7 Lando NORRIS McLaren + 56.124 1
8 Pierre GASLY AlphaTauri + 62.946 1
9 Kevin MAGNUSSEN Haas F1 Team + 64.308 1
10 Lewis HAMILTON Mercedes + 73.948 1
11 Guanyu ZHOU Alfa Romeo + 82.215 2
12 Nico HULKENBERG Aston Martin + 91.742 1
13 Lance STROLL Aston Martin1 L 1

Charles Leclerc takes the fastest lap, resulting in a bonus point. Sainz closes on the podium.

Max Verstappen wins in the sprint with 543 thousandths of an advantage over Charles Leclerc. A beautiful race.

Lap 50/50 Leclerc cannot attack, there are still the yellow flags in the first sector.

Lap 49/50 Albon retires after a contact with Stroll. Still yellow flags, it’s a pity that such a duel has to end like this …

Lap 49/50 Crazy, what bad luck. A yellow flag is waved and Leclerc cannot use the DRS.

Lap 48/50 Now it is Leclerc who is glued …

Lap 48/50 Leclerc remains very close to Verstappen, the Dutchman signs the fastest lap in 1’31 ″ 779.

Lap 47/50 Perez is going to get Sainz back. Red Bull better than Ferrari with hard tires.

Lap 47/50 This time Verstappen attacks Leclerc on the outside and passes him at the end of the straight.

Lap 46/50 Attention, Verstappen is now very close in the central sector …

Lap 46/50 Another attack by Verstappen, deep braking by Leclerc, who resists. This race never ends …

Lap 45/50 This time he fails to attack Verstappen, but remains under one second behind. It will arrive in a sprint, incredible …

Lap 44/50 Nothing to do, Verstappen still in the wake of Leclerc, he doesn’t give up.

43rd lap / 50 ABSURDOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!! Attack within Verstappen! Locking the wheels for both, the Ferrari stays in front! It is a terrifying challenge.

Lap 43/50 MORE OVERPASS AND COUNTERPASS! Verstappen overtakes Leclerc on the outside, the Monegasque returns to the front taking the slipstream on the main straight!

Lap 42/50 Leclerc resists braking. One wonders how it is possible that Verstappen approached under the Virtual Safety Car regime …

Lap 42/50 Verstappen is in the wake of Leclerc.

Lap 41/50 Slow pit stop for Hamilton, 3 ″ 9. It has medium tires.

Lap 41/50 It starts again after the Virtual Safety Car regime. Verstappen is very close to Leclerc, 1 ″ 1.

Lap 40/50 At the moment the bonus point for the fastest lap is in the hands of Max Verstappen.

Lap 40/50 The classification under Virtual Safety Car:

1 Charles LECLERC FerrariLEADER 1
2 Max VERSTAPPEN Red Bull Racing + 3.319 1
3 Carlos SAINZ Ferrari + 10.796 1
4 Sergio PEREZ Red Bull Racing + 15.082 1

13 Guanyu ZHOU Alfa Romeo + 83.429 2
14 Nico HULKENBERG Aston Martin + 96.738 1

Lap 39/50 Ricciardo, Alonso and Bottas retired in just one lap. Reliability plays a decisive role this year.

Lap 39/50 What will Max Verstappen do now? Will it stop and mount soft tires? At the moment the pit lane is closed.

38th lap / 50 VIRTUAL SAFETY CAR! Now let’s see what happens, the pit lane has been closed. Even Alonso fails to return to the pits and stops at the entrance to the pit lane …

Lap 38/50 Ricciardo parks the car just before entering the pit lane. Yellow flags. Bottas retires with Alfa Romeo.

Lap 37/50 Attention, Ricciardo’s McLaren is also proceeding slowly, here everything can change.

Lap 37/50 Russell’s pace improves, now he turns only 4 tenths slower than Sainz (but 8 compared to Leclerc).

Lap 36/50 Technical problems for Alonso, the car proceeds very slowly towards the pits.

Lap 36/50 1’33 ″ 474 for Verstappen, fast lap, but gains just 7 thousandths on Leclerc.

Lap 35/50 Leclerc and Verstappen are pushing hard. Braking error for Sergio Perez, who slips 2 ″ 7 from Sainz.

Lap 35/50 Alonso passes Magnussen and is 7th with the Alpine.

Lap 35/50 1’32 ″ 680 for Leclerc, he improves again and gains 2 tenths on Verstappen.

Lap 34/50 The fact that Hamilton has already completed 34 laps with hard tires suggests that both Ferrari and Red Bull can go all the way with the compounds mounted at the pit stop.

Lap 34/50 The Mercedes continue to run around the second behind the lap against Leclerc and Verstappen.

Lap 33/50 Clearly now the degradation of the hard tires fitted to both Ferrari and Red Bull will be decisive.

Lap 33/50 Leclerc and Verstappen go to rubber band, now it is the Monegasque who gives 2 tenths of a second to his rival. 1’32 ″ 683 for the Ferrari driver, it is the fastest lap.

Lap 32/50 Verstappen gains 2 tenths and moves to 1 ″ 2 from Leclerc.

Lap 31/50 Sainz gets back to breathing, Perez slips to 1 ″ 9. Even today, however, Leclerc and Verstappen seem to have another step.

Lap 31/50 The updated ranking:

1 Charles LECLERC FerrariLEADER 1
2 Max VERSTAPPEN Red Bull Racing + 1.757 1
3 Carlos SAINZ Ferrari + 5.090 1
4 Sergio PEREZ Red Bull Racing + 7,311 1

15 STROLL Aston Martin lances + 36.564 1
16 Alexander ALBON Williams + 38,054 1
17 Guanyu ZHOU Alfa Romeo + 47.703 2

Lap 30/50 Sainz is in trouble. Loses 7 tenths from Leclerc and sees Perez approaching 1 ″ 3.

Lap 29/50 Hamilton, who started with hard compounds and hasn’t stopped yet, lets us know the tires are okay for now.

Lap 29/50 Now Leclerc gains 3 tenths over Verstappen with the fastest lap, 1’32 ″ 711. We expect a new pit stop at the end of the race, it is a plausible hypothesis. Verstappen could try the undercut, Ferrari will have to think carefully about what to do.

Lap 28/50 Red Bull flies hard. Fast lap for Verstappen, he goes to just 9 tenths from Leclerc. And under the second you can use the DRS …

Lap 27/50 Leclerc leads with 1 ″ 4 on Verstappen, 3 ″ 6 on Sainz, 5 ″ 5 on Perez and 9 ″ 2 on Russell.

Lap 27/50 1’33 ″ 181 for Sainz, it’s the fastest lap.

Lap 26/50 At the moment, the Mercedes are in fifth and sixth position, but they lap over the second slower than Ferrari and Red Bull.

Lap 26/50 Attention, Leclerc pinched the white line of entry to the pits when restarting after the Safety Car. There is apprehension about the hypothesis of a penalty. Verstappen protested a lot on the radio.

Lap 25/50 Hamilton puts Magnussen inside and is sixth.

Lap 25/50 1’33 ″ 445, now the fastest lap is for Verstappen, who returns to 1 ″ 1 from Leclerc. Dutch is the usual mastiff, we don’t find out today.

Lap 24/50 Leclerc flies, 1’33 “459, but Verstappen does not give up and remains at 1” 3.

Lap 24/50 Overtaking and counter-overtaking between Hamilton and Magnussen for sixth place. For the moment the Dane from Haas reacts.

Lap 23/50 1’34 ″ 075 for Leclerc, is the fastest lap of the race.

Lap 23/50 The partial classification:

1 Charles LECLERC FerrariLEADER 1
2 Max VERSTAPPEN Red Bull Racing + 0.976 1

15 Guanyu ZHOU Alfa Romeo + 13,246 1
16 STROLL Aston Martin Lances + 13,824 1
17 Alexander ALBON Williams + 14,353 1

Lap 22/50 Perez purposely made Sainz pass after the episode out of the pits, therefore to avoid a penalty.

Lap 22/50 Hamilton is 7th, but has not yet made the pit stop.

Lap 21/50 SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAINZ! Great pass inside on Perez, he is third!

Lap 21/50 Leclerc manages to hold the position on Verstappen.

Lap 20/50 The Safety Car is about to return to the pits. Leclerc absolutely has to defend himself from Verstappen now …

Lap 20/50 It seems that Sainz had the right of way over Perez out of the pits: we’ll see what the commissioners decide.

Lap 19/50 Ferrari’s pit stops were fast: 2 ″ 6 for Leclerc, 2 ″ 7 for Sainz.

Lap 19/50 It is a risk to think of reaching the finish line with these hard tires, they could even burst.

Lap 19/50 Sainz, when he came out of the pits, found himself fighting with Perez for third place. The Mexican almost pushed the Spaniard against the wall. The episode was noticed by the commissioners.

Lap 18/50 The classification after the pit stops:

1 Charles LECLERC FerrariLEADER 1
2 Max VERSTAPPEN Red Bull Racing + 0.766 1
3 Sergio PEREZ Red Bull Racing + 2.302 1

16 STROLL Aston Martin lances + 26.545 1
17 Alexander ALBON Williams + 35.957 1
18 Nicholas LATIFI Williams–

Lap 18/50 The two Ferraris and the two Red Bulls have mounted medium tires: the race is still very long, will they be able to finish the race with these compounds? In theory it was necessary to make the first pit stop around the twentieth lap …

Lap 17/50 Sainz was unlucky as he had to brake in the pits to avoid hitting Verstappen who was returning after changing tires.

Lap 17/50 A bit of luck for Ferrari. The Virtual Safety Car means that the time lost for pit stops is halved. This is why Leclerc found himself in front of Perez (but also Verstappen).

Lap 17/50 Now it is a real Safety Car. CHARLES LECLERC IN COMMAND!

Lap 17/50 Pit stops for the two Ferraris and Verstappen.

Lap 16/50 VIRTUAL SAFETY CAR! Latifi hits the wall!

Lap 16/50 Perez returned to the track behind Russell.

Lap 16/50 It is really a game of chess … The Ferrari mechanics had called Leclerc to the pits via radio, but the Monegasque remained on the track: it was a fake …

Round 16/50 Twist! The first to stop is Sergio Perez, who therefore anticipates Ferrari’s undercut!

Lap 15/50 At the moment tire degradation for Red Bull and Ferrari looks very similar.

Lap 15/50 Unleashed Hamilton, Gasly also passes and is 10th: Mercedes will have problems, but pride and talent are unchanged.

Lap 14/50 Bottas (Alfa Romeo) removes the paint from Ocon and takes seventh place.

Lap 14/50 Now Leclerc gains half a second in one go and moves to 2 ″ 3 from Perez.

Lap 13/50 5 seconds penalty for Zhou: he gained ground with a chicane cut.

Lap 13/50 Perez is disputing one of the best races of his career. Brings the gap to Leclerc to 2 ″ 8. We’ll see if Ferrari tries the undercut strategy. But you must also pay attention to Verstappen …

Lap 12/50 The angry battle between the Ocon and Alonso Alpines continues: it is evident that they do not love each other. For nothing…

Lap 12/50 Hamilton puts Norris on and is 11th, on the edge of the points zone.

Lap 12/50 Perez continues to be the fastest on the track. Earns 2 tenths on Leclerc, 4 on Verstappen and Sainz. At the moment the Mexican would also take the bonus point for the quick spin.

Lap 11/50 Hamilton has moved up to 12th place, now he has a tough nut to crack: Lando Norris.

Lap 11/50 Now Leclerc gains 2 tenths and moves to 2 ″ 2 from Perez.

Lap 10/50 Now the first four are running at the same times. Russell (Mercedes) pays about one second per lap from Red Bull and Ferrari.

Lap 9/50 The updated ranking:

1 Sergio PEREZ Red Bull RacingLEADER – –

Lap 8/50 Ocon attacks Alonso, but ends up long in braking and must return to the position.

Lap 8/50 Verstappen lets the team know via radio that he has noticed a problem on Leclerc’s Ferrari.

Lap 7/50 Alonso attacks Ocon and overtakes him on the outside with a decisive maneuver: it was a real duel between teammates.

Lap 7/50 Perez stretches again, 2 ″ 5 on Leclerc.

Lap 6/50 Verstappen is just 1 ″ 3 from Leclerc.

Lap 6/50 Ferrari in great difficulty. Leclerc loses in one fell swoop 7 tenths from Perez and 4 from Verstappen.

Lap 5/50 Escape Perez. 1 ″ 8 on Leclerc. Incredible battle between the Alpines of Alonso and Ocon for 6th place: the Spaniard risked hitting his teammate.

Lap 4/50 Perez is faster than Leclerc in this start, he also gains in the first sector which, in practice, had seen the Reds dominate.

Lap 4/50 Russell attacks Ocon inside and overtakes him: the British driver in the Mercedes is fifth.

Lap 3/50 Perez drives with 1 ″ 4 on Leclerc, 2 ″ 9 on Verstappen and 3 ″ 9 on Sainz. 5th Ocon at 7 ″ 4.

2nd lap / 50 Perez unleashed in this start, already has a 1 ″ 3 advantage over Leclerc.

Lap 2/50 Hamilton is attacked by Albon for 14th place.

Lap 2/50 Perez got off to a good start and immediately closed the inside line to protect himself from Leclerc. Sainz’s start was not ideal, slipping off Verstappen at the first corner.

Lap 1/50 Perez holds his head in front of Leclerc, Verstappen overrides Sainz and is 3rd.

GREEN TRAFFIC LIGHT ! F1 2022 Saudi Arabian GP has begun!

19.02 The pilots go to line up on the starting grid… Here we are!

19.01 It is therefore possible that Ferrari and Red Bull decide to go for a single stop, mounting the hard tires in the second part of the race. This on paper …

19.00 Reconnaissance tour!

18.58 Medium tires for everyone, except for Hamilton, Hulkenberg and Magnussen who mount the hard bikes.

18.57 During the reconnaissance lap we will discover the tires mounted by the drivers.

18.55 It will be a race where patience and, above all, the ability to know how to react promptly to unexpected events that, on this narrow track, are largely predictable (read Safety Car or red flags…) will be needed.

18.53 There will be 50 laps to go.

18.52 Alex Del Piero is also there to see the race in Jeddah.

18.51 This is the new starting grid net of the absences of Schumacher and Tsunoda and the penalty imposed on Ricciardo:

1 Sergio Perez (Red Bull) Q3
2 Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) Q3
3 Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) Q3
4 Max Verstappen (Red Bull) Q3
5 Esteban Ocon (Alpine) Q3
6 George Russell (Mercedes) Q3
7 Fernando Alonso (Alpine) Q3
8 Valtteri Bottas (Alfa Romeo Racing) Q3
9 Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri) Q3
10 Kevin Magnussen (Haas) Q3
11 Lando Norris (McLaren) Q2
12 Guanyu Zhou (Alfa Romeo Racing) Q2 (one position gained)
13 Lance Stroll (Aston Martin) Q2 (two positions gained)
14 Daniel Ricciardo (McLaren) Q2 * (three penalty positions, one of which recovered due to Schumacher’s forfeit)
15 Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) Q1 (one position earned)
16 Alex Albon (Williams) Q1 (one position earned)
17 Nico Hulkenberg (Aston Martin) Q1 (one position earned)
18 Nicholas Latifi (Williams) Q1 (one position gained)

18.49 Tsunoda would have started last, so the starting grid does not actually change.

18.46 Carlos Sainz’s (raised?) Look:

18.44 National anthem of Saudi Arabia.

18.41 We remind you that there is free choice for the teams on the tires to use at the start. By regulation, however, it is necessary to mount at least two different compounds, therefore for example soft-medium or medium-hard.

18.40 Chris Horner at SkySport: “ Perez did a fantastic lap yesterday, we hope he can get off to a great start: it will be a very close battle with Ferraris. The Reds are very fast and hard to beat, we want to see the checkered flag. Verstappen doesn’t need to give everything in the first corner, the race is long “.

18.37 Mattia Binotto on SkySport: “ Problem solved for Sainz, we are calm. Nothing in particular, when these things happen before departure there is a bit of concern, but now it is in place and we are calm. It is a race with many pitfalls, high speeds, walls, the Red Bulls: it will be a game of chess on strategies, we will have to act and react in the right way. We thought about all the strategies, but then the race is always another story. We are ready and will do our best. The important thing is to finish and score as many points as possible “.

18.35 Carlos Sainz in the pit lane has a worn face, it seems that he has seen the witches … They were not easy minutes, for sure.

18.33 And here is Tsunoda left on foot:

18.32 Here are the Ferrari mechanics at work on Carlos Sainz’s car, who then managed to get on the track.

18.30 Let’s recap what has happened so far. Around 18.00 there was great excitement in the Ferrari garage, with almost all the mechanics struggling with Carlos Sainz’s car. A wiring problem was discovered, which was however resolved within minutes. The Spaniard took to the track regularly. The GP for Tsunoda has already finished, left on foot by the AlphaTauri engine (which is the same as the Red Bull).

18.27 MORE SCENE! Tsunoda’s AlphaTauri stops on the track during the installation lap. “I lost the engine”, his radio team. It will be a GP with 18 cars, also recalling Mick Schumacher’s forfeit.

18.22 All the cars are regularly taking to the track. Starting tests at this time at the bottom of the pit lane. Recall that there is a time to get on the grill.

18.20 There are 40 minutes left, the deployment procedure begins. Sainz comes out of the pit lane regularly! The problems for the Red # 55 seem to have been averted.

18.17 Small electronics problems on Carlos Sainz’s car. The third place of the Iberian who will soon have to line up on the grid with his direct opponents should not be at risk.

18.15 Clear skies in Jeddah, the spotlights are already on for what is in fact the second night race of the year. We will then have to wait until Singapore
to have a new run at the end of the day.

18.12 Problems for Carlos Sainz! There is no news on the subject from the Red box according to reports from Sky Sport F1. The third box of the Spaniard could be at risk

18.09 The track is the same as last winter. Some walls have been moved in order to increase visibility, the last curve has been widened by over a meter and a half for safety reasons.

18.06 The Jeddah Corniche Circuit was built last December. It has a surface area of ​​6,174 km, interspersed with 27 curves. This is the fastest non-permanent facility in the world, the organizers’ goal was to bring down the leadership of Monza, an unsuccessful mission.

18.03 Everything is ready in Jeddah for the second edition of the Arab GP which, unlike last year, opens the competitive year. In fact, we recall that the first challenge in the history of this race was held in December a week earlier than the championship decider in Abu Dhabi.

18.00 Good evening friends of OA Sport and welcome to the Live Live broadcast of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, second act of the F1 2022 World Championship. In a few minutes we are off!
