The Formula 1 World Championship moves to the cradle of motorsport, the place where the championship began in 1950. And it does so with Max Verstappen dominating and Charles Leclerc more in need than ever of a new victory.
It’s been several races since Ferrari felt the urgent need to react and cut Red Bull’s winning streak, but the races go by and this doesn’t happen. Thus, the Anglo-Austrian team has already won six consecutive victories, five of which have fallen on the side of Max Verstappen.
It is not surprising, therefore, that the championship seems heavily weighted in favor of the Dutch driver, current world champion and clear dominator of this first part of the season against a charles leclerc that has stood up and has even shown itself to be superior, but that has not always been able to translate said potential into results.
With the arrival of British Grand PrixFerrari and Leclerc will have to cut the winning streak of Red Bull and Max Verstappen, or they will most likely start to say goodbye to the championship.

Fernando Alonso, Carlos Sainz and Checo Pérez at the F1 British GP
The three Spanish-speaking drivers face the tenth Grand Prix of the season with their own goals. Starting with Fernando Alonsothe Spaniard was capable of fighting for the podium in the previous race in Canada, but various mechanical problems, the unfortunate presence of the Safety Car and a subsequent penalty made him fall back to ninth position.
At Silverstone, a circuit in which Alpine incorporates a notable aerodynamic update on the A522, Fernando Alonso will seek to extend his streak of four Grand Prix in the points, but also to achieve once and for all a result that does justice to his performance.
Carlos Sainzwho achieved his fifth podium of the year in Canada and fought for victory for the first time, will continue working on his adaptation to the Ferrari F1-75, but above all he will seek to get on the podium and continue to get closer to his first victory in Formula 1.
THIS IS THE GENERAL CLASSIFICATION OF THE F1 WORLD CUP
As to Sergio Perezhis aspirations in the championship have suffered a setback in Canada, a circuit in which he left, so if he wants to regain options he will have to impose himself on the current leader of the championship, his teammate Max Verstappen.
The calendar of the Formula 1 World Championship
The 2022 season was intended to become the longest in history by hosting 23 Grand Prix of Formula 1, although after the cancellation of the Grand Prix of Russia it was not yet clear if this wish was going to be fulfilled. Ultimately it will not be like that and, once again, the championship will remain at 22 events.
Regardless of that, this year’s calendar has brought back classic events that were absent during the pandemic. We talk about racing Australia, Canada, Singapore and Japan. The first was already played during the month of April and the second arrives this week. The Asians will have to wait until the fall to certify their return.

The drivers and teams of the Formula 1 World Championship
But without a doubt the great protagonists of the 2022 Formula 1 Championship, as every year, are the participants: 10 teams and 20 drivers willing to complete the longest season in history touring four continents and 21 countries.
On this year’s grid we have three world champions, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel, as well as a rookie driver: the Chinese Guanyu Zhou, who forms a couple with Valtteri Bottas at Alfa Romeo. We also see the return of Alexander Albon with Williams and Kevin Magnussen with Haas.
One more season, Spain is represented by Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz, both framed in the same team as in 2021. The Spaniard defends the colors of Alpine and is in charge of executing THE PLAN to the best of his ability, which, however, does not include fighting for the title or for victories.
On the other hand, the man from Madrid could reach that point, as Ferrari has improved even more this year and already aspires to important things with Red Bull and Mercedes as main opponents. can Carlos Sainz finally get his first victory and beat again a very fast Charles Leclerc?
