Podcast: Does Leclerc make too many mistakes to become F1 champion?

With Charles Leclerc spinning out of the lead and into the barriers during the French Grand Prix, does the Ferrari driver make too many mistakes to be an F1 World Champion?

Max Verstappen took his seventh win in the 2022 F1 season with victory in Sunday's French Grand Prix – but it was almost overshadowed by title rival Charles Leclerc spinning out of the lead and into the barriers on Lap 18. With the Monegasque now 63 points behind Verstappen in the title race, is Leclerc making too many mistakes to stake a claim for the World Championship title? Joining Michael Butterworth to discuss all the key issues from Paul Ricard is Dieter Rencken, Editorial Director of RacingNews365.com . Verstappen publicly played down his title hopes after his victory, but with such a commanding points lead, is the crown now his to lose? Sunday's race looks likely to be the last French Grand Prix for a while, with Las Vegas and Qatar set to join the F1 calendar next year. But with serious questions surrounding the probability of a South African Grand Prix in 2023, does this mean a reprieve for the Belgian Grand Prix? And with F1's silly season drawing on apace, will we see movement in the driver market at McLaren, Aston Martin and Haas? All this and much more on this edition of the RacingNews365.com podcast!
