Formula 1 today published the provisional 2022 F1 World Championship calendar with a record-breaking 23 Grand Prix schedule being approved by the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council.

The 2022 season commences next year in Bahrain on 20 March and ends in Abu Dhabi on 20 November, with Miami hosting the first of two races in the United States.

As we reported earlier this week, due to COVID-19, China will not be included on the 2022 F1 calendar. Shanghai will be restored to the schedule as soon as local authorities deem it fit.

Stefano Domenicali, President and CEO of Formula 1, said: “We are excited to announce the 2022 calendar as we prepare to enter a new era for the sport with brand new regulations and cars for next year that are designed to create closer racing.

“This season has been incredible so far with great battles on the track, large audiences tuning in and fans returning to the races after the impact of the pandemic. We look forward to welcoming more fans back next season and hope 2022 feels more normal than the life we have all experienced in the past two years.”

“We are very pleased with the interest in Formula 1 from places that want to host races and the growth of the sport, and believe we have a fantastic calendar for 2022 with destinations like Miami joining famous and historic venues.

“The pandemic is still with us, and we will therefore continue to be vigilant and safe – to protect all our personnel and the communities we visit.”

“The pandemic has continued to present challenges to the 2021 season, but the entire sport has shown its ability to react and adapt to the challenges as they have arisen.

“While we hope the virus recedes further in the coming months for everyone around the world, we will continue to closely monitor the situation and work closely with the promoters and national authorities.”
