F1 reveals 23-race calendar for 2022 season
Formula One has confirmed a record-breaking 23-race calendar for the 2022 season, featuring the newly announced Miami Grand Prix and the retention of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
The calendar will begin on March 20th with the Bahrain Grand Prix before spanning the globe and culminating in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 20, with several Grands Prix previously cancelled by the ongoing global pandemic slated to return.
The Australian, Canadian, Japanese and Singapore Grands Prix have been included meaning that, after a two-year absence, Lance Stroll will race in front of his home crowd once more.
China is a notable absence due to ongoing pandemic conditions, with the Shanghai International Circuit due to return when circumstances allow, while Imola retains its place on the calendar.
In a bid to avoid direct competition with the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the calendar will have two triple-headers spanning the Belgian, Dutch and Italian Grands Prix, as well as the Singapore, Russian and Japanese races.
The calendar also features a reshuffle of the early order compared to previous seasons, with the Australian Grand Prix no longer hosting the season opener, instead taking place on April 10th as the third race of the campaign.
The debut of the Miami Grand Prix is slated for May 8th, slotting between Imola and Spain, while Saudi Arabia moves forward to March 27th, forming a Middle East double-header with Bahrain.
