World number one tennis star Daniil Medvedev claims Max Verstappen has already won the 2022 world championship
Tennis star Daniil Medvedev believes Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen is on course to win the 2022 Formula 1 World Championship.
Former world number 1 Daniil Medvedev had a lot to say about Max Verstappen having had a strong start to the season. Moreover, he currently leads the world championship with more than 80 points ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.
The Russian tennis player is definitely a Formula 1 fan and can’t wait to celebrate alongside Verstappen by the end of 2022.

Max Verstappen is 80 points ahead of all other F1 drivers
Max Verstappen won 8 races out of the 13 races in the first half of the season. In addition, the Mercedes of its former great rival Lewis Hamilton is not able to compete with Red Bull.
Lewis Hamilton has scored podiums in the last five races and is currently sixth in the world championship. The Dutchman’s current rival, Charles Leclerc, is on an inconsistent spell with his Ferrari.
Considering this situation and how Verstappen is 80 points ahead of the competition, it’s believable that he could win his second world championship.

He admires Verstappen and believes the 2021 world champion’s driving ability is even better than last year’s winning season.
Medvedev added: “This year Verstappen is so strong and so consistent. Even if he starts from P10, some hope that Leclerc will win. As the championship gets more exciting, but Max just won. It is awesome.”
