The Saudi Arabian GP, the second race of the 2022 season, was as eventful as it gets. It had all the chaos and fighting to make a race exciting. What led to the highlights, however, was Lewis Hamilton’s retirement after Q1 as the driver finished P16 in Q1.
That prompted plenty of ridicule for the seven-time world champion. It was the first time Lewis Hamilton had failed to make Q2 since the 2017 Brazilian GP and the first time since 2009 when he last did so in an all-race race. But despite starting from P15 and making up a place after Mick Schumacher retired from the race, Lewis finished P10 and took a point.
Lewis Hamilton’s worst start since 2009
This season, also Lewis Hamilton’s sixteenth year of his F1 career, marks his worst start since the 2009 season. He has only 16 points in the first two races, his worst in twelve years. But the Brit is not to be taken lightly as he will surely take to the track in the coming races seeking redemption.
