BHPian Aditya recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

The 2022 Formula 1 season has come to an end. It has been a long and hectic one for the constructors and drivers.

The fans have been treated to some fantastic driving by the reigning champion Max Verstappen, who easily defended his World Drivers' Championship crown. His team, Red Bull Racing, won the World Constructors' Championship quite easily as well as Max's teammate, Sergio Perez chipped in with some strong performances as well.

Ferrari drivers, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz and Mercedes driver, George Russell had their moments too.

Former champion, Lewis Hamilton did make some podium appearances and McLaren driver, Lando Norris finished on the podium once as well. Strong finishes from Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon ensured that Alpine Renault finished ahead of McLaren. On the other hand, Daniel Ricciardo and Mick Schumacher had poor runs.

The end of 2022 also saw four-time champion, Sebastian Vettel retire from the sport.

So who was your F1 driver of 2022?

Here's what BHPian attinder had to say about the matter:

Max, 15 wins in a car which was not dominant over the season.

Here's what BHPian Turbohead had to say about the matter:

I think it should be about who's the second-best driver this season. Verstappen has been performing at a very high level consistently this season apart from a weekend or two.

The second-best driver on the grid was Alonso IMO whose finishes were completely ruined by Renault's lousy powertrain. Leclerc didn't adapt to the stupidity of the Ferrari pitwall like Sainz and thus lost out big time.
