The Dutch are looking forward to using the number 1 card on their cars by 2022

Newly crowned world champion Max Verstappen will run No. 1 in his Red Bull car when the 2022 season kicks off from his current 33. This will be the first time since 2014 that a car will run No. 1 when Sebastian Vettel runs No. 1 as the defending world champion at Red Bull when he won the 2013 season. It was stated that he was considering running No. 1 in his car before winning the world championship at the controversial finale in Abu Dhabi, but now that he has won the title, Mr. he mentioned it again.

At the end of the 2014 season when Lewis Hamilton was crowned world champion, the Briton chose not to run the number 1 on his car even though as world champion he was entitled to that number. Instead, he opted to run number 44, which is his number even this season when he is the defending world champion. In 2017, when Hamilton was not the world champion when he lost the title to his former teammate Nico Rosberg in 2016, the number 1 position again disappeared when the German driver decided to retire from F1 at the end of the 2016 season, with immediate effect.

That means the F1 grid has no reigning world champion, and Hamilton runs number 44 in his Mercedes. Hamilton often talks about having the mentality of a hunter going into a world championship battle even if he is the defending world champion that’s why he doesn’t use a number card 1 on my car. However, for Max Verstappen, having a chance to get the No. 1 spot on his car seems to be a big deal and one of the things that excites him most about winning the 2021 crown.

Over the course of the season, Verstappen led more than 600 laps, stood on the podium 18 times, more than any F1 driver in a single season, and won 10 races. He has even managed 11 pole positions, making him a very impressive world champion, but next year the grid will be reset as there are many new aerodynamic rules in effect. Teams like Ferrari and McLaren have been preparing for years. So it will be interesting to see if he can defend his crown as even Mercedes is developing much of its 2022 car and its pair of drivers gets a huge upgrade with the added George Russell to the team along with the legendary Hamilton.
