Verstappen raged through to take a genuinely direct triumph in the end stages, putting most points on the block while Leclerc finished with essentially nothing and Sergio Perez could summon the fourth spot.
The possibilities of him leaving a mark on that complete next break in Hungary seem thin in view of last year’s race. The 24-year-old took P9 after contact on the initial lap, so might be feeling fairly troubled in front of the current year’s return.
During his legendary title fight with Lewis Hamilton in 2021, he won the following two Grands Prix in Belgium and the Netherlands which, as per his assessment for this season, would take him extremely close to making sure about Championship number two.
From that point on, in any case, it took Verstappen until the United States Grand Prix to score his next triumph. The United States GP will be held on October 23 this year, despite the fact that it is not yet clear whether the Red Bull star can expand the benefit over his opponents in Italy, Singapore, or Japan before that.
Leclerc has likewise been great this year and is ready to go nearer to the title than ever before. However, relentless issues with his Ferrari might wind up costing him and colleague Carlos Sainz an excessive number of points. The bay in class and consistency is presently clear with Verstappen flaunting seven wins for the season to Leclerc’s three, and nine podium finishes to Leclerc’s five.
In any case, he communicated compassion toward his opponent at Circuit Paul Ricard where the Ferrari ace seemed to mount a significant test for triumph. “It would have been a really good battle to the end, unfortunately, we never got to that, but luckily Charles is okay. Mistakes are easily made,” Verstappen added.
“I feel sorry for him of course. It’s not nice and he knows that. We’ve still got a lot of races to go and there will be a few tough weekends for us as well,” Verstappen concluded.
