F1 video: the Leclerc-Pérez that ended up giving Verstappen the title

The 2022 F1 Japanese Grand Prix race was full of controversy from the start, in a start marked by the accident of Carlos Sainz and the scare of Pierre Gasly while a crane was in the middle of the circuit removing the Ferrari from Madrid, in addition to a red flag that neutralized the test at Suzuka.

The FIA had work during all that time, investigating what had happened, and also studying the conditions of the asphalt to try to roll again, something that came when there were only 45 minutes left of the maximum limit imposed in the regulations, which only allows the Appointments last three hours from the time of dismissal.

The sanction of Charles Leclerc that gave the second F1 title to Max Verstappen


It was there that Max Verstappen escaped from the rest of the single-seaters to achieve a new victory, the Dutchman’s 12th this season, although he had to wait for a combination of results to celebrate his two-time championship. For Red Bull to pop the champagne for the title, Charles Leclerc had to finish third or worse, while the other driver from Milton Keynes had to finish second or worse.

At first, this did not happen, since the Monegasque defended himself perfectly against the Mexican for more than a quarter of an hour with obvious problems in his intermediate tires, but on the last lap, everything changed. The Ferrari man skipped the Casio Triangle chicane, leaving himself at the mercy of Checo, who was unable to overtake him a few meters from the finish line because Leclerc kept his foot on the board and barely lost his lead.

From the Red Bull wall they watched the action and complained to the international federation, which did not hesitate to launch an investigation and, before they reached the parc fermé , they imposed a five-second penalty on the Monaco. For this reason, he fell to third place, in a result that gave the energy drink team a hard-fought double and the second world title of Max Verstappen ‘s career, who was incredulous when they told him that he had been crowned champion.

The doubts continued in the prepodium room, where it was not clear if he was the winner of the 2022 course, but the FIA reaffirmed the decision when it explained that the modification of the scoring system in these races was not altered.
