GPR Awards – 2022 Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

The final race of 2022’s Formula One season had us saying farewell to a great many drivers, some of whom we will miss and others of whom we have already forgotten. While the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was its usual plodding self, it at least

GPR Awards – 2022 Formula 1 São Paulo Grand Prix

As George Russell ends an eleven month winless period for Mercedes, his double victory in both the sprint and on Sunday’s race was overshadowed by incidents and accidents throughout the field, and above all by team politics in the Red Bull garage. And of course,

GPR Awards – 2022 Formula 1 Mexican Grand Prix

GPR Awards – 2022 Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix

For the second year in a row, Max Verstappen sailed to victory in front of his home crowd at Zandvoort. This year’s performance was quite a bit more ominous in its shades of Sebastian Vettel in 2013, and a late-season romp appears all but inevitable

GPR Awards – 2022 Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix

As Max Verstappen won from much further back than reasonable this time, Formula 1 is already preparing to add the Dutchman’s name to the list of double world champions. His ascension to the history books certainly quickened at the Belgian Grand Prix, as we at
