All this started on Saturday as Max snatched the pole from Charles Leclerc by a mere 0.010 sec. Max then went on and delivered a perfect race on the rain-soaked and constantly wet Suzuka Circuit for the 2022 Japanese Grand Prix.
It was pretty incredible to drive here again, especially in qualifying on low fuel. These cars really come alive in the first sector! Very happy to be on pole, but in general just super happy to be back here!
