REVEALED: Your favourite race of the 2022 season so far
Last weekend, we gave you the chance to vote for your favourite race of the first half of this exciting 2022 season. And after collecting all the results of the poll, the British Grand Prix has been voted as you, the fans', favourite race of the season so far.
The crowd was treated to a spectacle at Silverstone, as we saw plenty of impressive side-by-side racing between the drivers and a heart-stopping start-line crash, before Carlos Sainz went on to seal his maiden win in Formula 1. And with 50% of the vote, the British Grand Prix has been crowned as the fans’ favourite race of the season so far.
GRILL THE GRID: The drivers take on the geography round – can they name a circuit for every letter of the alphabet?
The Hungarian Grand Prix – won by Max Verstappen – came second in the poll, receiving 18% of the votes. Tied in third with 6% of the vote were the Bahrain and Austrian Grands Prix – two races that witnessed scintillating battles between Verstappen and title rival Charles Leclerc.
