The notes of the French Grand Prix / July 24, 2022 / SOFOOT.com

If Max Verstappen is still far from being world champion again, the road to his second title opened a little this Sunday, at Le Castellet, after the new failures experienced by Ferrari. For others, it is hard to believe that Liberty Media was convinced by the race scenario to renew the contract of the Paul-Ricard circuit. Too bad for Alpine who has a smile at home, unlike Pierre Gasly.

Max Verstappen

To give a note

The more Grand Prix passes, the more the Dutchman seems to drive like a 34-year-old veteran. Don’t be surprised to see him celebrating his 11the title of world champion in 2035.

Lewis Hamilton

The second place for his 300e CU which the Briton embraced with great joy. Waiting – finally – for a victory before the end of the season?

Little George had every right to scold Tonton Wolff in the middle of the race. In immediate effect: a first double podium this season for Mercedes. The Silver Arrows are back.

Sergio Perez

To give a note

Like his place of arrival. Often beaten by a Mercedes as well as a Ferrari part P19 and smoked like a Russell bruise. Bad hangover.

Carlos Sainz Jr.

To give a note

Fortunately, Carlos was there to give us a show during the race. Big kisses.

Fernando Alonso

To give a note

Too strong for some, but far from the strongest. Geraint Thomas.

Lando Norris

To give a note

He wants to make the French fans happy. Throwing his race behind Alpine d’Alonso, he made good on his word.

Esteban Ocon

To give a note

Like the boss who likes to bully the weak at school, the Frenchman spent his race tormenting Ricciardo. A man who knows how to put on a show for his audience.

Daniel Ricciardo

To give a note

With all the gusts of wind Ocon threw at him, he didn’t have too much trouble beating the heat on Sunday.

Lance Walk

To give a note

Has his Räikkönen radio personality made him grow wings? The Canadian can in any case breathe: a point and a finished race in front of his teammate.

Sebastian Vettel

To give a note

Winner of the most beautiful image of the weekend, on the wheel of Green Peathe original 1922 Aston Martin, to celebrate the team’s 100th anniversary in racing.

Pierre Gasly

To give a note

The weekends followed each other and Pierre looked the same. Unfortunately.

Alexander Albon

To give a note

A new Williams for a new life? Not yet.

Valtteri Bottas

To give a note

Frédéric Vasseur may be a water gun pro in the paddock, but it was his team that took the water to the heat in the Var this week.

Mick Schumacher

To give a note

So the prodigal son’s state of grace ended with a corner cut too close to qualifying, then a cleat that Zhou slipped through in the race. It’s hard to come back to reality.

Guanyu-Zhou

To give a note

A slow pain until the breakdown a few laps from the finish.

Nicholas Latifi

To give a note

A little spin and then disappear.

Kevin Magnussen

Editor’s note

Tour of France

To give a note

His penalty sending him to the back of the grid at the start did not bode well for a good race. And his crazy departure was not rewarded either. At the same time, the Danes have conquered France by bicycle this summer.

Yuki Tsunoda

To give a note

It’s hard to ride with the hand made side vents.

Charles Leclerc

Editor’s note

In fusion

To give a note

It was 33 degrees in Le Castellet and must have been 945 in the Monegasque’s helmet when the back of his car stopped and put him against the wall.
