2022 Brazilian Grand Prix

The Safety Car period towards the end of the Brazilian Grand Prix meant the final result didn’t reflect last weekend’s striking development: Mercedes’ unexpected turn of speed.

The team has been chipping away at its huge deficit to the front runners since the season began. In Brazil for the first time this year they were the clear pace-setters in race trim

Although George Russell set the fastest lap of the race, he seldom had to extend himself at the front of the field. Lewis Hamilton, however, had ground to make up following his lap seven collision with Max Verstappen.

The clash dropped Hamilton six seconds off the lead and he was almost 10 seconds in arrears by the time he fought his way out of the worst of the traffic. He ran a long first stint on the soft tyres and unleashed the pace of his car after his first pit stop on lap 30.

Hamilton ran five laps longer than his team mate at the start of the race and was eager to run long again in his middle stint on the medium tyre compound. However his team brought him in after just 19 laps on those tyres – the lap before Russell. That ensured he kept ahead of Sergio Perez, who had just pitted behind them.

The Safety Car period which followed was bad news for anyone who was left with the medium tyres for their last stint. That included Perez, who fell from third place to seventh in the final laps. He expected to regain one place from Max Verstappen, who he’d allowed through to attack Fernando Alonso, but to Perez’s obvious disappointment his team mate refused to hand the place back even after failing to pass the Alpine.

Sebastian Vettel was another driver who lucked out badly at the end of the race. He ran as high as third at one stage, but fell back as he lost around a second in the pits on each visit, and ended up having to give the final point to his team mate.

When the chequered flag fell, Russell was four seconds ahead of the leading Ferrari of Charles Leclerc, and the first of the Red Bulls was another six seconds back. But before the Safety Car period Russell had 16 seconds on Perez and 21 on Sainz, indicating the true scale of Mercedes’ pace advantage over the race distance.

    1. Different tyre strategy for Occon and Alonso but the last stint after the SC both on the soft and Occon’s tyre’s were only 5 laps older. In that respect a harsh call. George fastest lap in 61 when he needed that 1s gap after SC put in 3 almost identical lap times.

    2. Any chance we could get the lap times chart for the Sprint?
