The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix was the first Sprint Qualifying weekend of the season and once again the sprint format didn't really add much to the weekend with Verstappen passing Leclerc with two laps to go and taking the win. The weather over the weekend was changeable and the Grand Prix itself started in wet conditions. For most of the race there was little action down the field and Verstappen comfortably built a lead over Perez and Leclerc. A late pit stop for Leclerc in an attempt to get the point for the fastest lap ended up with him sliding off the track and finishing down in sixth. This resulted in Lando Norris finishing third behind, Perez and Verstappen.
As this was the first Sprint Qualifying weekend of the season it's perhaps worth reminding players how the scores for Sprint Qualifying are calculated in RealityF1.

The 2022 Bahrain Grand Prix was a very exciting race. Having qualified on pole Leclerc took an early lead but Verstappen closed him down at the first pit stops and then the lead changed hands several times before Leclerc came out on top again. Leclerc maintained a comfortable gap following the second pit stop but then Gasly retired his AlphaTauri and brought out a safety car. This led to another round of late pit stops and the field bunching up. At the restart Leclerc held onto the lead and Sainz started to close down Verstappen. Verstappen then started to lose pace and was easily passed and he then had to retire. Perez then came under pressure from Hamilton in fourth before the Mexican's car also failed on the final lap. A double retirement for Red Bull was not how they wanted to start the season but the car did look very quick behind the Ferraris. So it was a one-two for Ferrari in Bahrain and Hamilton taking an unlikely third.
