Max Verstappen on the course to win 2nd title in 2022
Max Verstappen won his first F1 title in a dramatic yet controversial fashion. The Dutchman was neck-to-neck with Lewis Hamilton heading into the last race of the season in Abu Dhabi.
The then Race Director Michael Masi’s controversial ruling in the dying laps of the race gave Verstappen a chance to overtake Hamilton. And he pipped the Brit in the last lap to win his first championship.
But this year, Verstappen is facing little to no resistance. The Dutchman is 80-points clear of his nearest competitor, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc. His performance’s so far clearly indicate he is worthy of a 2nd title.
Verstappen could decide not to show up for the next 3 races and he’d still be leading the championship 🤦🏽♂️

Ferrari, who are quicker in comparison to Red Bull had a headstart to the season. But reliability issues, driver errors and poor strategy, choked their lead to Red Bull who have a 96-point lead in the constructor’s championship.
Max has won 8 of the opening 13 races of the 2022 season ahead of the summer break. And with such an emphatic win, he just has to cruise to the finish line in the remaining races to assure him a second title.
