The first four positions at the end of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix Qualifying certify that 2022 opened under the banner of the duel between the Scuderia di Maranello and that of Milton Keynes. Mercedes at the moment even sees the role of third force in question, as Lewis Hamilton was eliminated in Q1 and George Russell also had to bow to Esteban Ocon’s Alpine.
