Who is wins maiden F1 British Grand Prix 2022?
Carlos Sainz
Lewis Hamilton
Charles Leclerc
Sergio Perez

Correct Answer : Option (A) - Carlos Sainz

Ferrari's Carlos Sainz took his maiden victory in Formula 1 as he held off the chasing pack during an enthralling 2022 British Grand Prix.
In a race that was red flagged on lap one due to a huge accident involving Alfa Romeo's Zhou Guanyu heading into the first corner, the Spaniard held his nerve to fight off attacks from teammate Charles Leclerc and Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton throughout to take his first race win.
Red Bull's Sergio Perez astonishingly fought his way back from an early pit stop to secure P2 whilst home favourite Hamilton completed the podium and took the fastest lap of the race. 
World Championship leader Max Verstappen struggled with his car after suffering a puncture early on, which saw him finish the race in P7, whilst Leclerc couldn't hold on towards the end of the race on his older set of hard tyres and slipped to finish P4 from leading the race on lap 43
Fernando Alonso, Lando Norris, Mick Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel and Kevin Magnussen rounded out the top 10, while six drivers failed to finish the race at Silverstone.
