The Canadian Grand Prix returns while the Chinese Grand Prix is still suspended due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as the 2022 Formula 1 schedule will see a record 23 races.
The 2022 schedule starts a week earlier and ends just after Thanksgiving, three weeks before 2021.
The Bahrain Grand Prix schedule will resume on March 20. Formula 1 is still in the Middle East with the second round of the Grand Prix in Saudi Arabia, which will host its inaugural race on December 5, 2021.
From there, Australia is back on the schedule after a two-year hiatus before the series heads to Italy for a week in Europe.
Round five of the 2022 Formula 1 calendar will open in early May in Miami, Florida, as one of two races to be held in the United States.
Formula 1’s worldwide spread will continue with a return to Europe in May for the Spanish Grand Prix and Monte Carlo before departing for Azerbaijan in mid-June.
The Canadian Grand Prix will return to the program a week later, on June 19. Over the past two seasons, this race has been replaced by the Turkish race, which was not scheduled for 2022.
The series then returns to Europe for seven races in England, Austria, France, Hungary, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy.
At the end of September, Formula 1 races will be held in Russia for a period of two races in Asia with races back in Singapore and Japan. The series said the Chinese Grand Prix will not be a part of that swing, but will return as soon as conditions allow.
Three races in the Americas make up the final four races with the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, Mexico City, Sao Paulo and Brazil in October and November.
The series will end a week before Christmas in Abu Dhabi, just as it has since 2014.
“The 2022 season comes after an unprecedented two years for Formula 1 racing, as the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a revised calendar of 17 races in 2020 and 22 in 2021 – a huge achievement given the international nature of the sport.” F1 said in a statement.
Even during the challenging conditions of the past couple of years, Formula 1 has been able to add new circuits and return to places where the events couldn’t have happened in 2020.
“We are delighted to announce the 2022 calendar as we prepare to enter a new era for the sport with new regulations and cars for next year designed to create even closer racing,” said Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1: It’s been great so far with big fights on the track, big fans rang the bell and fans returning to the races after the impact of the pandemic.
“We look forward to welcoming even more fans next season and hope that 2022 feels more natural than the life we have all lived in the past years. We are very pleased with the interest in Formula 1 from venues willing to host racing and the growth of the sport and we believe we have a great calendar for 2022 as destinations merge. With like Miami to famous and historical places.
“The pandemic is still with us, so we will remain vigilant and safe – to protect all of our employees and the communities we visit.”
