F1 news LIVE: lewis Hamilton warned by Mercedes engineer, Red Bull court fears, Marko gets salty

Max Verstappen leads the Formula One World Championship heading to the British Grand Prix as the 2022 season heats up. Verstappen now has a commanding lead at the top of the standings as Red Bull benefited from Ferrari’s issues.


Despite being almost 50 points behind Charles Leclerc after the third race of the season, the momentum has shifted. Verstappen has won every race he has finished this season bar one, while Leclerc’s early advantage has capitulated due to a series of issues.





The Ferrari star suffered two mechanical failures in the last four races in Spain and Azerbaijan. He was out of place at the Canadian Grand Prix after taking a grid penalty for engine parts while he also lost out in Monaco due to a strategy error from his team.

Speaking exclusively to Express Sport, Coronel said: “He has been brought up by Jos [Verstappen].“And Jos, okay some people can say it’s not good that you put so much pressure on your kids when you’re so young.“But this is what you create, you create a racing monster.”
