yesSeven of 22 Grand Prix of the 2022 season of the Formula 1 They are already in the history books. The first third of the season is in the past and it is a point that allows analyzing the performance of the teams and drivers.

Ferraris follow on the list, with Leclerc and Sainz separated by 16%. Mercedes, AlphaTauri, Aston Martin, Alpine, McLaren and Alfa Romeo follow, with the largest differences being in Williams and Haas, where the only ones who have added are Albon and Magnussen, without points from Latifi or Mick Schumacher.
