F1 race calendar 2022: Full list of dates for every grand prix in biggest season ever

·3-min read

Formula 1 is in the midst of the biggest season in its 72-year history over 2022 with 23 races planned at top class racing venues around the world.

The series has been on an expansion drive ever since owners Liberty Media purchased it from Bernie Ecclestone back in 2017, with focus placed on key financial territories including the Middle East and North America.

All but one of the tracks scheduled to host a grand prix in 2022 have done so far before. This season brings a brand new race in the United States onto the calendar in May, as the Miami International Autodrome makes its debut as the second US event alongside the Circuit of the Americas in Texas. The Florida venue will see drivers navigate 19 corners around the Hard Rock Stadium, home of NFL team Miami Dolphins.

Plenty of the circuits the drivers will compete around this year are making a return for the first time since 2019, owing to Covid-19 interruptions preventing them from hosting their regularly scheduled events. The likes of Suzuka in Japan, Marina Bay in Singapore and the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Canada are favourites among fans and will be welcomed back with open arms after dropping off the calendar in 2020 and 2021, while the Albert Park circuit in Australia has been revamped during its absence in an effort to provide more exciting racing.

A number of tracks which stepped in to help fill the gaps in the calendar left behind by those events will remain on the calendar, meanwhile, including the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at the historic Imola circuit and the Portuguese Grand Prix at Portimao.

The season began at the end of March with the Bahrain Grand Prix, and will end with the customary Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in mid-November. F1 will be wrapping up slightly earlier than usual in order to avoid a clash with the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

There has already been a change in the schedule after Formula 1 stripped Russia of their race in Sochi following the country’s invasion of Ukraine. The race weekend of 23-25 September has yet to be filled, but Formula 1 bosses are confident of finding a replacement venue.

With that in mind, Formula 1 has emphasised that the calendar is provisional and subject to change, and developments with Covid-19 will no doubt be monitored closely in all nations set to host a grand prix.
