We are well into the F1 2022 World Championship and it has been absolutely action-packed so far with two GPs done – Bahrain and Saudi Arabia

The thrills, the spills, the surprises, the shocks, the upset we’ve had everything. From defending champion Max Verstappen failing to register a timing into Kevin Magnussen securing a top 5 finish, coming in as a replacement driver in Bahrain – we have witnessed it all. Verstappen came back strong in Saudi Arabia to win the GP but the shock came from Lewis Hamilton who settled with a 10th place finish after being knocked out in the first qualifying round itself.

Last weekend in Jeddah, Max Verstappen stood on top of the podium followed by the Ferrari duo of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. Kevin Magnussen continued his dream return to F1 and backed up his P5 finish in Bahrain with a P9 finish ahead of Lewis Hamilton. Mick Schumacher missed the race as a precautionary measure after a horrific crash during Q2 of the qualifying session. While Sebastian Vettel missed a second consecutive Grand Prix due to a positive covid-19 report.

The next Grand Prix is scheduled for 10th April in Melbourne

After two blockbuster weekends, we have a break in F1 calendar this week before things get back to normal. With the Australian Grand Prix starting in the second week of April. Things are heating up but we are just getting started – what we can we look forward to in the Australian Grand Prix?

Well, the burning topic seems to be – will Hamilton get his season back on track? The Brit is aiming for a record eighth F1 championship title after narrowly missing out last season. However, it has been an underwhelming start to the new season and some things need to change if he has to stay in the title.

Fans are loving the Leclerc-Verstappen rivalry and will we be treated to another intense duel in Melbourne? We certainly hope so.

There are lots of other aspects to look forward to but the potential return of Sebastian Vettel and Mick Schumacher. The 4-time World Champion missed the first two races of the season after testing positive for Covid-19. Nico Hulkenberg replaced his fellow German for the Aston Martin F1 team. However, Vettel is now all set to be back for the Australian Grand Prix!
