BIGGEST LOSERS IN HUNGARY

  • In 1st place at the Hungarian grand prix is Vladimir Mazepin with 142 points. They were the best Booster of the race, despite it being an automatic action. Lucky Vlad. Three Pitlane Punt wins certainly helped too.

  • Vladimir Mazepin's sister team Nikita Putin comes 3rd with 110 points. Talk about a dominating performance in the League standings.

  • In 5th position are Alfa Daley with 104, slightly flattered by pressing two Boost Buttons.

Track Points for drivers and constructors: Hungarian grand prix 2022

Valtteri Bottas shooting a water pistol, saying "it's an alien ray gun, no more sausage legs for me"

A year on from his bowling ball destruction, Valtteri Bottas was the only retirement at this year's Hungarian grand prix. The reasons for his exit this time were far less dramatic. A problem with his fuel system. That's rubbish. He could at least have been kidnapped by aliens and returned to his cockpit with sausages for legs or something. He takes the spoils in Hungary alongside Ricciardo, who had a rotten race and therefore scooped the earliest exit and raceday special Track Points.

Williams and Alfa Romeo were the highest scoring constructors. But never mind that. Vettel! He's going! Sebastian Vettel has had an illustrious career. He came 7th in the drivers' standings in the 2021 F1 Losers League, and is currently 4th in the 2022 rankings. He's done other stuff in F1 too, can't remember. We salute you, Inspector Seb.

Track Points for drivers and constructors: French grand prix 2022

 Leclerc's Ferrari in the barriers, long skid marks trailing, with a satnav saying "after 200 yards, turn right"

All eyes were on Leclerc driving his championship hopes into the Paul Ricard barriers. "First retirement!" we whooped. "Biggest loser of the race!" we salivated. But no. Missed by the cameras, Yuki Tsunoda quietly retired his damaged car following an earlier clash with Ocon. That and a beige flag makes Yuki our finest failure in France by some margin.

Haas's trip to France was a stinker. A pitlane start, bad tyre degradation, a poorly timed pit stop, Mick Schumacher hitting Zhou, and a race-ending clash with Latifi for Kevin Magnussen. "We struggled a little bit," said Mick after the race. And then some. The biggest losing constructor of France 2022.

The Oh No Ocon Punt (closed)

Oh No Ocon: play this Pitlane Punt

Esteban Ocon is the lowest scoring driver in the F1 Losers League so far. So let's give him his own Pitlane Punt.

Here's the situation. Esteban hasn't returned any of our letters, despite us writing them in lovely green crayon, and sending them by carrier rat. "Do worse!" we plead. "Slow down!" we beg. The question is: will he listen to us?

Ocon is currently 8th in the FIA world championship standings^. Bet that he will be 9th or lower by the time we get to the summer break.

The Flexi Floor Flutter

Play the Flexi Floor Flutter now

There has been a lot of debate about "flexi floors", a mysterious aerodynamic trick that the FIA wants to crack down on as we go into the summer break. See the video at the bottom of this page.

Mercedes have struggled this year, but they reckon this will "level the playing field". Meanwhile, people are accusing Red Bull of using flexi-floors a bit too much. What will happen once the FIA get involved?

For the first races after the summer break, bet that either (a) Mercedes' race results will drop off or (b) Red Bull's race results will drop off. Read on to play this Punt.
