Six talking points from 2022's Abu Dhabi F1 finale

A suitably perfect ending to a season of domination. That’s how Red Bull summed up this performance seconds after Max Verstappen had taken the flag, the double champion’s record-extending 15th victory of 2022 offering up a fitting coda to his astonishing year. The Dutchman was serene as he led all the way from pole position, so much so he was almost forgotten out front as attention turned instead to the battle behind him. Charles Leclerc claimed best of the rest honours for the season, seeing off Sergio Perez in their duel for second as Ferrari got the better of Red Bull on strategy – which hasn’t been something we’ve been able to say too often this year.
