The latest F1 2022 results as Sergio Perez continued to set the pace in Belgium, while Charles Leclerc red-flagged the session with an off at Turn 12.

The Red Bull driver finished a tenth ahead of his team-mate and World Championship leader Max Verstappen, who has engine penalties to contend with this weekend.

Carlos Sainz completed the top three with his former team-mate Lando Norris in P4 for McLaren.

Fernando Alonso, soon to be a new Aston Martin driver, was in the lofty heights of P5 ahead of George Russell in the Mercedes.

Leclerc put himself into P7 before a late off ended his session earlier than planned. The retiring Sebastian Vettel was P8.

Rounding off the top 10, Esteban Ocon was P9 and fellow Frenchman Pierre Gasly pinched P10 ahead of Daniel Ricciardo and Lewis Hamilton.
