F1 World Championship points after the 2022 Brazilian GP

The main focus ahead of the Abu Dhabi GP finale is on the fight for second place, after Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc beat Red Bull’s Sergio Perez at Interlagos.

That moves Leclerc to the same number of points, after Perez’s teammate Max Verstappen refused a team order to give him his position before the finish. Ferrari backed out of a driver change that would have helped Leclerc.

How the Brazilian GP impacted 2022 F1 World Championship drivers’ points

Russell scored 25 points at Interlagos and is now 25 points clear of team-mate Lewis Hamilton, who finished just behind him in Brazil. Russell effectively only needs one score in Abu Dhabi to ensure he finishes fourth in the standings, ahead of Hamilton – although the seven-time world champion has more second places if he wins there and goes through countdown.

Leclerc’s 15 points in Brazil puts him level with Perez, who scored just 10 this weekend, on 290 points – they are 139 behind champion Verstappen, who refused to give up his sixth-place finish at Interlagos. Leclerc also wanted team-mate Carlos Sainz to step aside, but Ferrari refused – saying it was too “difficult” to do so.

In the battle for fifth place, Hamilton enters the final race six points clear of Sainz, having edged him two points in Brazil.

Despite dropping out at Interlagos, McLaren’s Lando Norris is now assured of seventh in points, with just five between Alpine duo Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso in a potentially spicy fight for eighth. Valtteri Bottas (Alfa Romeo) took a two-point lead over Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) in 10e.

How the Brazilian GP impacted 2022 F1 World Championship constructors’ points

In the Constructors’ Championship, Mercedes’ mammoth tally of 58 points at Interlagos was only offset by Ferrari being the second highest scorer, with 37. Ferrari enters the series standings with just 19 points from ahead of Mercedes after 22 races (plus sprints).

Meanwhile, Red Bull recorded one of their worst collective results of the season, scoring 23 points.

Having clawed its way back into the battle for fourth place, McLaren suffered a disastrous Brazilian GP weekend. He scored just two points in the sprint, with a double DNF in the main event, while Alpine scored 14 – despite Ocon and Alonso meeting twice in the sprint. The gap between them fell from seven to 21 as a result.

As in Mexico, Alfa Romeo gained a point over Aston Martin Racing in the duel for sixth place – with five points now between them ahead of Abu Dhabi. Haas’ point for eighth place from pole winner Kevin Magnussen in the sprint doubled his advantage over AlphaTauri with one race remaining.
