Red Bull celebrates Max Verstappen becoming 2022 F1 champion at the Japanese Grand Prix

2022 Japanese Grand Prix

The unpredictable 2022 Japanese Grand Prix brought a rain delay, a troubling safety scare and widespread confusion over Formula 1 points scoring, but out of it all came the inevitable: a second world championship for Max Verstappen

One day, Max Verstappen will get to win a world championship in normal, uncontroversial circumstances.

2022 had none of the controversy of 2021, but it completely outdid it in terms of confusion, and probably involved far worse handling of aspects of the race when you take the potential outcomes into account.

While last year’s interpretation of the regulations still hurts for many, it didn’t put any lives at risk. Early in the Japanese Grand Prix, lives were.
