Again, this entry is no surprise. Verstappen stood on the podium a record-breaking 18 times this year, picking up the winner's trophy on 10 of these occasions.
After struggling to get to grips with the Red Bull in the early stages of the year, the season was always going to be an uphill task for Perez, but even a string of late-season podiums could not close the gap to his championship-winning team-mate.
On paper, this does not look good for Ricciardo but don't forget that the Australian scored McLaren's first F1 win since 2012 at Monza.
Ricciardo made no secret of his struggles to adapt to the McLaren MCL35M after moving from Renault [now Alpine] during the winter and he will be hoping the 2022 'new era' cars somewhat level the playing field.
For Norris, the outcome was a confirmation of his potential and, had the weather not turned in Russia, he too could have taken home race-winning silverware.
Possibly the only surprise here is that the margin was not greater. After scoring points on debut in Bahrain, Tsunoda went spectacularly off the boil to a point that when he was handed a contract extension with AlphaTauri, even he was surprised.
Granted, the Japanese driver was up against one of the standout performers of the year in Gasly, but these numbers will have to close in 2022 if he is to continue into a third year in F1.
Vettel claimed the Aston Martin's only silverware of the year, made more passes than any driver across the season and finished ahead of Stroll in the standings, so for the German not to top this stat is a shock.
