The FIA and Formula 1 have announced a calendar for next season that will have a record 23 races that will not include the Chinese GP for the third consecutive year, but will therefore keep the Emilia Romagna GP in Imola.
“The 2022 season follows an unprecedented two years for Formula 1 in which the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a revised calendar of 17 races in 2020 and 22 races in 2021 – a huge achievement given the international nature of the sport,” said Formula 1.
“It has been fantastic to welcome fans back to events this year, and we will continue to ensure this is done safely and in line with national guidelines.”
“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.”
Unlike 2021, Saudi Arabia got a place at the beginning of the calendar behind Bahrain for 2022, which will be the first race of the season as in 2021, and Australia will be the third race of the season as in 2006.
Imola will retain its place among the first races of the season, after being second race of this season while the new race on the streets of Miami will be the fifth race of the season ahead of traditional races in Barcelona and Monaco.
Canada hasn’t hosted a F1 race in the last two seasons, but should return in 2022 as the ninth race of the season while races in Singapore and Japan, which are scheduled for the first two weekends in October, should return to the calendar, followed by USA and Mexico in the same month.
The last two races of the season in Brazil and Abu Dhabi are scheduled for November, unlike this season in which the last two races are held in December.
