Awesome racing from the entire grid saw Ferrari take line honours as the AMG Mercedes chased them down as best they could to finish 3rd and 4th.
Tyre wear was promising with the new cars as the circuit track surface was without driver complaint.
Temperatures were ideal all weekend.
Max Verstappen is a long way back in the season points as Ferrari command a driver and constructor lead ahead of the current world champion.
Aston had a shocker all weekend as Williams with Albon delivered a point for the team, a well earned result for the 2022 season.
420,000 fans attending over four days after a 1121 day sabbatical.
Radio words were focused amongst most of the drivers where they either went close to a shunt or admitted their fault for a shunt or blaming everyone else but themselves. We know the engineers retrying their best to keep talk on the radio to a limit, no doubt some of the drivers need subtle reminders especially to drink whilst racing (no alcoholic of course).
