Video: the winning overtake in a new Verstappen-Hamilton

The sun was shining brightly on a Sunday in which the 2022 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix would be the protagonist in the country, or rather, the duel between two old acquaintances in the highest category of motorsport. Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton met again on the Circuit of the Americas while fighting directly for a victory , something that had not happened since last season’s remembered Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, where the Dutchman took his first world title surrounded of controversy.

With different strategies and several safety cars that influenced the tactical decisions of the teams, the Red Bull and Mercedes cars reached the final laps very evenly matched, with the seven-time world champion ahead of the Dutchman. However, it was a bad stop by the Milton Keynes mechanics that led to a fierce fight for victory, which would make Verstappen equal the historical record in a single year of Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel or that of the brand of more times winning in consecutive courses for Hamilton.

The newly crowned two-time champion was inching closer to his rival after the pit stop, and with just a few laps to go, the Dutchman took advantage of the DRS to overtake the Englishman on the Austin backstretch. The one from the Brackley team did not give up, even getting parallel in the next corner, but was able to stay in the slipstream thanks to the use of the mobile wing.

However, Verstappen’s great pace made Hamilton’s efforts to get closer to him useless, and a tire lock with two laps to go was what buried the Mercedes’ options, since he went more than a second behind.

In this way, the Red Bull driver achieved his 33rd victory in Formula 1, breaking ties with Fernando Alonso on the all-time list and equaling the two Germans who won the most victories in a single season at the Great Circus.
