The 'DRS hunting' was comical, but it's just awesome freakin' racing between these two. We're in for a great season 🙌

Right before the DRS line:
"Go ahead Charles."
"No, YOU go Max."
"No, I insist."
Great rivalries this year.

Leclerc vs Verstappen

Ferrari vs Red Bull

Mercedes vs Haas.

Really feel bad for Checo, that pitstop couldn't have come at a worse time, a lap earlier and he would still be in 1st, a lap later and he would still be in 1st, that was truly the worst time to pit, Checo was coasting pretty easily before that... Great race anyway, this new era is really going to be fantastic

this year feels like the 2019 rivalry between Max and Charles is reborn. Glad to see Ferrari being back as a genuine contender as well.

Unlucky guy of the day s. Perez very sorry for him!! but what a great and exciting race, 2022 will be a great season!!
I hope this lasts for the whole season. Brilliant battles, high tension but all with respect. I love how they talk to eachother after the celebrations. This is the type of rivalry I wanna enjoy each and every race weekend.
What a sensational battle I was on the edge of my seat all the way through this from lap 42 to lap 50 it was fantastic

2022 is living up to all its expectations very nicely

Forza Ferrari 🇮🇹🐴🇮🇹🐴🇮🇹

Super Super Max Max 🇳🇱🦁🇳🇱🦁🇳🇱

Thats some -dangerous driving man-
Great racing.
With how it's forming this is going to go down to the wire. Seeing those two guys battle and have the on-track and off-track respect for each other is all I ever wanted. These guys are a gift to F1.
Great battle, this season could end up just like the last ;)
Love the Respect between Max and Charles!
We missed it last year
This is gonna be an amazing season with two amazing drivers fighting for the crown!
Lets go to the next race!😱😍🔥
Leclerc is in love with the brake-early-to-get-DRS strategy
Absolutely fantastic battle. The 2022 regulations have worked brilliantly to provide us closer racing.

Max Verstappen is the king of the F1 world ! I just love to see him race and win! Max is the new Ayrton Senna no doubt in my mind.

Great moment. Cannot wait for Suzuka, Silverstone, Monza, and Spa.

Tbh so far Max/Leclerc battles have been so much better than the Max/Hamilton battles. I feel like both their aggressive styles work very well for wheel to wheel battles but time will tell.

I am a fan of Max, but really wanted to congrulate Lecrec what a professional he is. After this very tense battle he congrulates Max on his team radio. This is pure sportsmanship.👏👏👏

Absolutely BRILLIANT that race! Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc racing wheel-to-wheel, and yet keeping it fair-and-square. And the sportsmanship between the 2 is something I LOVED seeing. Absolutely amazing stuff there.

However, there were 3 things that really bothered me during this race weekend:
1. Too many replays
2. Williams being Williams
3. Zhou's penalties

Like, come on, stop showing all those replays! I was on the edge of my seat, and you really shouldn't be taking your eyes off a battle like that. The replays just completely destroyed the flow. As for Wiliams, they really need to step up there game, because this should NOT be happening. Latifi crashing twice for the same reason is like watching Mazepin in 2021, and Albon doing that braindead dive bomb and DNF'ing as a result simply disappoints me. Seriously, don't become the Haas of 2022...

As for Zhou's penalties, I really could not understand what was going on because the cameras weren't paying attention to him. From what I understand, he cut a corner to gain an advantage and failed to act accordingly, but is that what was really going on? Seeing Zhou getting those penalties is like watching the West put sanctions on Russia.
2 worldclass drivers from the same generation battling each other till the end of every single race. This is real racing and pure entertainment. This is what F1 is all about. Simply amazing.
These two guys are making us realise that LH was just an average driver in a race winning car all time long.

Robert RC Games:
What a race! What a show by Lecler and Max. Fair and hard racers. Lets bring Sainz, Perez in the mix and this is going to be one epic season 😁😁
That was fantastic battle. I hope Charles wins the championship this year, but I want to see more of these battle between them.
WHAT. A. BATTLE! Wow! Please more of this! 🔥 the moment when they both tried to trick each other by not accelerating to get drs (in the last corner) was hilarious. Strange that the gap between Charles and Max changed after the VSC. It was 2 seconds before VSC but after VSC it suddenly changed, so it’s very very weird

We are getting a glimpse of F1 without Hamilton and Vettel and it's glorious. Finally some drivers WHO WANT A BATTLE.
0:51 that dude enjoyed that overtake a little too much
That's some clean racing right there. For the second time. Looks it wasn't all verstappen's fault last year... he is capable of clean racing...
What Amazing racing that was !
Kept us at the edge of our seats
Joey Ros
Joey Ros:
I just love how the both cars could stay within 7 to 8 tenth the whole lap through, its looking like the regulation change has payed off
Maxx really showing he's got what it takes to be a Champ!!!

It had been years since I had seen such a beautiful and fun F1. Great Verstappen and Leclerc!. More battles like this please!
Eric Haardt
Eric Haardt:
Great battle and very honest and respectful drive from both. This season is starting to be even more promising than last year!

PS: Substitute either driver with Hamilton in the same battle and we would’ve probably seen an incident that was “not Hamilton’s fault”.
Ótima batalha, os dois se respeitaram muito. Deram espaço para ultrapassagens e não houve nenhum perigo, diferente do Hamilton que ama bater nos outros quando é pressionado.
Wonderful race. Exactly what I hoped we would get out of the 2022 season
A Z:
We're watching history unfold before our eyes.

Their battles this season will be remembered like those of Senna and Prost, or Schumi and Hakkinen. What a time to be alive!

Amazing race!! Epic double lock ups and smart driving for both Max and Charles
Can only wish that the rest of the season be like today's race~~ EPIC !!!
Von Sensei
Von Sensei:
Compared to last year, where after a move the leading driver would most likely pull away a second within the lap, now they’re racing closer than ever 🤘🏽
Im Dutch but i didnt even care who wins anymore. This was AWESOME!!!
Michael Maniago
Michael Maniago:
I like how Max and Charles play mind games on that last turn before the DRS zone knowing it's vital for the lead and just straight up race. Unlike a certain crybaby I know that goes straight in front of a slowing Red Bull 😂😂😂😂

This will be such a fun season to watch!

Que maravillosa carrera, gran batalla por el primer lugar, Max es fenomenal. Esperemos que en la próxima carrera haga podio con Checo.
Amazing how clean the racing is when Hamilton isn't involved.
Ferrari is back on top❤️ Sainz also doing well

Loved every second of this. On the other hand, if the duel was between Hamilton and any of these two, it wouldnt have ended like this, most likely dnf.

Go Max and why is Leclerc not punished for crossing White lines and setting the fastest lap under the yellow flag?

That was Epic. You can't cross the DRS detection line in front😬 otherwise the driver behind you will be smiling😁.....That was an epic battle, well done to both drivers.
0:36 Both drivers trying to behind each other in the DRS detection zone...kudos for Verstappen for playing along. It won him the race

Patryk P.:
0:03 WOOOO, HOW DID MAX DO THISSSS. Lewis would drive straight into Charles back, and then Charles would get a penalty
Wait, so you can use the DRS strategically WITHOUT rear-ending another driver? I thought that wasn't possible.

New regs have made F1 even more epic <3 Thank you Max and Charles for the action.

Anyone else get the feeling we’re actually watching the new breed now… Max V Charles if both teams keep on the pace with development can be a rivalry that goes on for *years* and we are ready for it👌 just like 2019 all over again😤
What a race! Red Bull is back and so are Ferrari! You love to see it
Hope this battle continues the entire season 🔥💯🔥

Its going to be an amazing season if this kind of action keeps up! Amazing to see respect between both drivers out there even with the pressure high. Who knows what this season will look like come the midway point
I love this. Drivers racing not just with physical skill, but their brains as well. Amazing!

That's F1 at its finest, incredible race in Jeddah. Max and Charles are both so brilliant and talented, we're gonna have fun for many years to come.

This is awesome racing. Nice battles everywhere. In the front in the middle and behind 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽. Please more races like this
Epic fight! and kudos to both on keeping it very hard but fair. But how did Max get so close to Charles after VSC? Charles had a few seconds on Max before VSC and almost all of it just disappeared!!

Increíble estos dos! Solo dos meses de diferencia en edad, rivales desde niños y ahora lo llevan al nivel más alto posible... que historia! Que revalidad para la fórmula 1 y para el deporte en general para los que disfrutamos de muchos deportes.

Clint Burgamy:
F1 can pat themselves on the back for this one. Great job on the new regulations and not hearing the teams on the radio to the stewards every time something happens it great too. Just wish you wouldnt show a replay in the middle of a battle. Less replays...but everything else is 100% better.
What an amazing fight. I can only imagine how much bigger F1 will be around the world, when these new cars prove themselves to be more entertaining than ever!

Verstappen's positioning of the car was a key element of the final succesful overtake... It's a shame that it's not included in this video

This season looks like a thriller with Redbull and Ferrari being so close. Great work by Max and Charles was solid as always.
Excellent battle and great driving by both, however that DRS detection malarkey needs to change because it is neither safe nor very fair.
