Formula 1 live race updates, results, highlights from 2022 Saudi Arabia Grand Prix

  Formula 1 live race updates, results, highlights from 2022 Saudi Arabia Grand Prix Sporting News is tracking live updates and highlights for the second Formula One race of the 2022 season. Follow for complete results from the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix.Aside from the Mexican's first career pole, the main story was the continued struggles of Mercedes, with Lewis Hamilton failing to get out of Q1 and starting the race way back in 15th position. Hamilton is nine grid places behind his teammate, George Russell, casting doubts over his performance in a car that seriously lacks straight-line speed compared to its rivals.

F1 world championship leader Leclerc beat Max Verstappen to pole position in Australia with his final Q3 lap, a 1m17.868s, to claim top spot by 0.286s ahead of the Red Bull driver.

Leclerc was however summoned to the stewards for driving too slowly back to the pits during Q1, the same accusation levied at Yuki Tsunoda and Zhou Guanyu.

Verstappen’s team-mate Sergio Perez claimed third place, while the other Ferrari of Carlos Sainz Jr endured a "disaster" of a Q3 session and will start down in ninth. Sainz lost his first timed lap due to a red flag caused by a crash by Fernando Alonso and was then delayed in beginning his final run due to a starter issue, which resulted in rushed preparation for his last effort.

McLaren produced a return to form with Lando Norris taking fourth place in qualifying ahead of both Mercedes drivers. Remarking that the team had made no progress on its W13 car, Lewis Hamilton was fifth and George Russell in sixth, while home favourite Daniel Ricciardo missed out late on to drop to seventh.

After Alonso’s Turn 11 crash - caused by a hydraulic issue, which he believed cost him a chance of challenging for pole - relegated him to 10th place, Esteban Ocon led the Alpine efforts with eighth ahead of Sainz.

Nicholas Latifi and Lance Stroll clashed in Q1 of qualifying, resulting in the Aston Martin driver being handed a three-place grid penalty after being blamed for the crash having lost awareness of Latifi’s location on-track when both drivers were overtaking each other during out-laps.

Sainz fastest in first practice for F1 Australian Grand Prix

  Sainz fastest in first practice for F1 Australian Grand Prix MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc led a one-two Ferrari sweep in the first practice session Friday for Sunday's Australian Grand Prix. Sainz completed the revamped Albert Park circuit in a time of 1 minute, 19.806 seconds, with Leclerc .571 second behind. Red Bull drivers Sergio Perez and defending series champion Max Verstappen were third and fourth-fastest ahead of a second practice session later Friday. There will be another practice session on Saturday ahead of late afternoon qualifying for Sunday's race. Lewis Hamilton was seventh-fastest in his Mercedes and local hope Daniel Ricciardo was eighth in his McLaren.

It capped a terrible day for Aston Martin as both Stroll and Sebastian Vettel crashed heavily in final practice. Stroll’s collision with Latifi incidentally provided extra time for the team to fix Vettel’s car so he could set a lap time in Q1, but the German could only manage 18th – promoted up one spot to 17th on the starting grid due to Alex Albon’s own three-place grid penalty from the Saudi Arabian GP.

Albon was subsequently disqualified from qualifying regardless, having stopped on track on his way back to the pits and been unable to provide a one litre fuel sample.
